What We Do

Funding the Unfunded

What is Funding the Unfunded?

The Adams 14 Education Foundation provides small amounts of funds for creative approaches to enhance student achievement or expand student-learning opportunities through projects not typically supported by traditional school funding. Only applicants who fit the criteria can submit an application for their funds. After submission, a committee of Foundation board members will review the application and decided on the award amount. The award can range from $300 to $1,500 per project. To learn more about the program, check the guidelines below.

In 2020, the Foundation provided funding to purchase a classroom rug for the kindergarteners. Ms. Gamburg used this rug to help with supporting “a classroom full of wiggly 5-year-olds…”


All Adams County School District 14 employees. Teams of employees are welcome to apply as one applicant. Funded recipients may only re-apply for one consecutive grant period for the same project. Previous recipients may also submit a grant proposal for a new project
