2016-17 Classroom Grants
This year, teachers submitted 391 classroom grants - more than ever! There were lots of field trips, a growing number of science grants, and, like every year, art, music and dance. We hope to bring lots of smiles to classrooms this year!
We learn so much when we review these grants every year. It gives us ideas for even bigger ways to support the educational experience of Berkeley students. Stay tuned!
2017 Schools Fund Luncheon
The 2017 Spring Luncheon was a wonderful success! Our honorees were truly inspiring and as always, the Berkeley community turned out to show their commitment to our public schools. The Spring Luncheon raises a third of the Schools Fund’s annual budget and is our opportunity to highlight the Schools Fund’s contribution to our schools.
Strategic Impact Grants
In January, The Schools Fund Board approved the last round of Strategic Impact Grants for 2016-17. This year's grants supported teacher professional development across grade levels and subjects, and almost $76,000 for arts programs and over $47,000 for STEM projects.
