Grant Programs

Congratulations to the 2020 Grants Recipients!!

We are excited to share that our tremendous FMSD educators have submitted a total of 167 grants for consideration to the FFMS. This marks the highest response rate in the history of the Foundation, in fact, more than double the next-highest total. Per usual, the Innovative Classroom Proposal grants led the way, with 105 applications. This year, however, there was a very strong interest among educators in furthering their own knowledge, with 47 Professional Development grant applications. This was followed by 11 Principal Project applications and 4 applications for the TEC Dowling Technology in the Classroom applications. Three out of the four categories were record responses.

We awarded 84 total grants at a total of $88,400. Thank you to all that participated and congratulations to our winners. Click on the link below to see the 2020 Grant Recipients.

Special thanks to Scott and the Grants Committee for all their work thus far. The increase in grants is due, in part, to the work Scott and the committee put into communicating the program to District Leadership and Principals to encourage participation. Even in the midst of this uncertainty, the FMSD principals and teachers took time and action to submit proposals that fully support the mission of the Fort Mill School District - to put Children First...Every Day.
