Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year WCCUSD Community!
Looking ahead at the upcoming school year, teachers are in need of support. On average, teachers spend around $750 out-of-pocket each year to purchase their own supplies for their students and classrooms– even standard school supplies, like pencils, paper, markers, and notebooks. In recognition of these sacrifices and your dedication, the Ed Fund is proud to announce this year’s opportunity to apply for a Back-to-School Mini-Grant! These 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.
We look forward to your application and reading your plans to accomplish learning initiatives with the supplies you need to meet the diverse needs of your students.
Who: All West Contra Costa Unified School District teachers can apply for a grant. Principals/VPs can apply on behalf of a teacher. (At this time, we are not accepting applications from charter schools.)
What: Grants of $250 are available to support teachers and their classrooms. Grants can be used on: supplies, books, instruments, teaching tools, costumes/props, etc.
How: Simply submit an online 2022 Back-to-School Mini-Grant Application through our website’s “Apply Now” button/link.
When: Application opens August 29, 2022 on a rolling, first come first serve basis. 100 grants available.
