The Santa Rosa Education Foundation supports teachers through a myriad of grants including our annual Teacher Grants program.  Below you will find links to current grant opportunities.

Teacher Grants

Santa Rosa Education Foundation was pleased to award 51 Teacher Grants totaling $51,000 to Santa Rosa public educators last year.  SREF, in partnership with the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations and the Florida Legislature, is enabling teachers to implement grants that engage students in active learning while increasing student achievement.  Every donation to the SREF Teacher Grants program is matched dollar for dollar with state matching grant funds.  Grant recipients must submit an evaluation of their project including a final budget, and receipts for purchases.  Last year, our 51 Teacher Grants impacted over 10,600 students and 395 teachers. There is no doubt that these classroom grants make a difference in the lives of our students!
