Excellence in Education Grants are the Foundation's largest grants. With an EIE grant you can make reality what you've been imagining for your students.  

Application details


a few helpful tips

  • EIE funds can be used to purchase necessary materials to implement new educational initiatives.
  • EIE funds can be used to support before and after school activities.
  • Consider having your students "write" the grant or drive the process.
  • Ask your PTA to match EIE funds granted by LSDF (double the money!!).
  • Find ways to work across grades and/or schools - partner up!

Grant Writing Tips

  • Refrain from using an excessive amount of jargon.
  • Do not insert links or videos into your grant application - grant reviewers will not use this information as part of the review and selection process. 
  • Be sure to describe the need as it relates to your students, your building, or your program.  
  • Have someone (preferably not an educator) read your grant to check for understanding.
