Since 1983, the Ed Fund has awarded grants to support West Contra Costa County public schools. We are proud to continue being a source of funding for the teachers in our district. During the prior school year, we awarded nearly $26,000 in Bradley Arts Grants to 40 projects across the district and $18,000 in grants for Black History Month Arts programming.

The Ed Fund is thrilled to announce that our application for the 2022-2023 school year is now open! Read below for more information about our two grant opportunities and apply today.

Grant Opportunities

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year, WCCUSD community!

We were so excited to be able to announce two grant opportunities for this school year. We are once again offering the Bradley Arts Mini-Grants this year and are excited to introduce our Back-to-School Mini-Grants!

Our Bradley Arts Mini-Grants give the WCCUSD community the opportunity to empower and support students, especially African American/Black students, with their social, emotional and academic needs, while supporting project-based learning, skill development, and engaging learning experiences. The Back-to School Mini-Grants are intended to ease the burdens of out-of-pocket costs while improving the educational experience of students, especially focusing on the needs of African American/Black students.

Aligning our work to our equity statement, the Ed Fund will be rewarding grants that support all students, but will be providing impact points for projects that have an explicit focus on the needs of African American/Black students or that incorporate art of African American/Black artists.

Each application has certain requirements, please read them on the application itself. To preview the applications, click here:

Once you have reviewed these applications, apply by submitting an online application. If you would like more information on how to make your application stand out, check out this mini workshop on grant writing.

We’re so humbled to be able to support our educators and their classrooms this school year. If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Camacho at sarah@edfundwest.org or Robert Bunce at robert@edfundwest.org.
