MINI-GRANT APPLICATIONS


The Spokane Area Retired Educators Association (SAREA) has established a fund
for active school personnel to use on non-budgeted programs or materials that
will enhance student education. Applications of $200 or less will be considered. The request may be for complete or partial funding of a project.

In years past, grants have been requested for field trips, guest speakers, books in specific areas of curriculum, and/or special supplies. They have also been awarded for special programs as well as drama and musical productions. Creativity, need, and impact on student learning are factors considered by the selection committee.

Enclosed is the application for the SAREA Mini-Grant Program. Please feel free to copy applications as needed. We thank you for distributing the forms to interested staff. The deadline to return the applications are "on or before the first Friday in November."


Thank you for your cooperation and interest in this worthwhile project.

Sincerely,
Jan McFarland, Grant Chair
Spokane Area Retired Educators Association
