Perrysburg Classroom Grants Program

The Classroom Grants program was the first project institute by the Foundation Board. These grants were designed to enable teachers at all grade levels to bring innovative educational ideas, techniques and resources to the classroom that were not funded by tax dollars.

Since 1985, the Foundation has awarded over $100,000 in grant funding for educational programs in the district, impacting every student in the system and providing opportunities for educational enrichment both inside and out of the classroom.
