Classroom Innovation, Coover Regional grant deadlines approaching

A reminder on two grant rounds with application deadlines within the next month or so:

Springfield-Greene County Classroom Innovation Grants: These grants are a partnership with Community Foundation of the Ozarks and Greene County’s school districts to support programming and teaching methodology within classrooms that foster an environment of innovation and creativity for students. The changes taking place in education and the workforce to adapt to 21st century learning center around creativity, communication and collaboration. These grants support learning opportunities that reflect and promote these principles and essential skills.

Eligibility includes (but isn’t limited to) the RSP’s partner schools in Willard, Fair Grove, Republic and elsewhere in Greene County.

Coover Regional Grants: The Louis and Dorothy Coover Regional Grantmaking Program, a partnership between Community Foundation of the Ozarks and The Commerce Trust Company, will award grants to agencies serving the Missouri Ozarks to support new or innovative programs in all subject areas supported by the Foundation.

Eligible organizations (including schools) with regional service areas primarily outside of metropolitan Springfield and Greene County are encouraged to apply. The Coover Grant Program has $200,000 to award to agencies providing services that address the above listed, areas of interest, with a $10,000-$20,000 range suggested for proposal consideration.

Please email Julie Leeth to let her know you will be attending —

Give Ozarks Day is our first region-wide online giving day, intended to build funds for our non-profit partners, raise awareness of philanthropy, and reach donors who support and promote causes on line. The CFO has committed $100,000 for endowment matching that day and we hope to have an additional $90,000 for incentives and prizes for those agencies choosing to raise funds for operations or special projects.

Take a look at this link for additional information and also to see the businesses and individuals who believe in your work and have already committed to this day.

This is a new concept for our area, so if you have questions about how this will work please contact us.  We hope you will choose to be a part of this initial Give Ozarks day for our area!
