Grants

GEF accepts grant applications from District 34 teachers and administrators for innovative ideas they would like to implement in their classrooms and schools.

Last school year, GEF was able to award $62,808 in grants. $19,573 was awarded in Fall of 2018, and $43,235 was awarded in Spring of 2019. Since 2001, GEF has awarded over $2,000,000 to District 34. 

Thanks to GEF Donors, we are able to fund grants such as the Maker Modules. This program was approved for funding in Fall of 2017 and implemented in the 2018-2019 school year. Today, the Maker Modules program is the STEM curriculum for all students grades K-5 in District 34. Students learn through hands-on lessons in construction, circuitry, and robotics/coding. This is all possible because of our donors.
