The CAEEF was created in 2015 to benefit the students, staff and schools of the Crawford AuSable School District through college scholarships for seniors and grants for projects in pre-K-12th grade classrooms.
By May 2018, the CAEEF was ready to initiate the grants program, with the initial application window being June-July 2018 for the 2018-2019 school year and with a total of $2,000 in funds available.
Two $1,000 grants were awarded -- to the GHS chemistry department for laboratory equipment and to the GMS art department for digital cameras.
The second grant cycle runs January-February for the 2018-2019 or 2019-2020 academic year.
The foundation invites all CASD staff members to apply for grants. The documents needed to apply are below. All applicants will be notified of the decisions by March 31, 2019.
