    Since 2016, the Foundation has awarded grants to schools for both classroom and schoolwide projects. We have given out over $355,000 to schools across FCS for projects that have impacted over 75,000 students. These grants are awarded because of funds raised throughout the year by FCS Employee Giving, donors and the Duck Dive for Education duck 'adoptions' and sponsors.

    All FC schools and district departments may apply annually for a grant. Grant applications were on due May 27th. All grants are aligned to FCS' Learner Profile and School Improvement Plans. Grants are awarded each fall on #foundationfriYAY and were awarded on August 27, 2021.

    Below is a list of all grants that have been awarded:
