REQUESTS FOR PROPOSALS – Released September 15, 2020

 

GLOBAL AWARENESS FUND CLASSROOM GRANT

 

The Global Awareness Fund at La Crosse Community Foundation was established to support opportunities for expanding awareness of our multicultural world by helping individuals to identify with people from outside the United States. Its main goal is to encourage a view of the world that goes beyond the familiar to foster global understanding and citizenship.

La Crosse Community Foundation is actively looking to support K-12 classroom projects that align with the fund’s purpose. Requests can be made to enhance existing projects or to develop and introduce a new global awareness learning opportunity to students.

Examples of project ideas include (but are not limited to):

  • A guest speaker or speaker series on a global issue
  • A field trip to experience world cultures
  • A cross-cultural celebration event
  • A theatre production with a global theme
  • A global awareness-themed book read

Any school staff from any private or public school in La Crosse County is eligible to apply. More than one request per school is allowable.

Grantees from the 2019-20 school year who requested an extension through this school year because the pandemic changed the original project timeline are not eligible to apply unless that project is now complete and the follow-up form has been submitted. An exception could be made if the project from last year will be completed this fall, and the new project will occur in spring.

APPLICATIONS ARE DUE OCTOBER 15th AND AWARDS WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN MID-NOVEMBER.

THE MAXIMUM AWARD AMOUNT IS $1000. A TOTAL OF $7,800 IS AVAILABLE FOR GRANTS.
