FOUNDATION FOR EXCELLENCE ANNUAL MINI-GRANT PROGRAM

2019 Grant Awards

The Foundation for Excellence proudly awarded $21,616 February 2019 to benefit the Walled Lake Consolidated School District's K-12 classrooms (see list below). These grant awards compliment one or more of the Foundation's core initiatives;  literacy & leadership; community and diversity; science, technology & the arts; and District Programs.

Funding for the Foundation for Excellence mini-grant program is derived from the donations received from honorariums and memorials, alumni gifts, business, District and community support, "Count on Me" WLCSD payroll donation program, and through fundraisers (Tuition Expedition 50/50 Scholarship Raffle & annual golf scramble). 

The Foundation wishes to thank our supportive community for furthering our mission so we may together build a strong Foundation...one child at a time.  

2019-2020 Mini-Grant application will be available November 2019

One grant cycle per school year
