Population(s) Served
K-12 (5-19 years)

The Freedom Area Educational Foundation makes funds available each year in the form of grants (up to $500). Grants are awarded to Freedom Area teachers to create new and innovative programs that would not normally be accommodated by the school budget. A teacher mini-grant gives our teachers an opportunity to be innovative, creative, and can make learning exciting for both students and teachers. These projects come directly from the teachers.
