A few tips to help you get started

  • LEG funds can be used to purchase necessary materials to implement new educational initiatives.
  • LEG 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 LEG 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 someone who is not an educator) read your grant to check for understanding.
