The following Davis Education Foundation programs provide needed resources to students, classrooms, and teachers in Davis School District.
The Cash for Classrooms Grant Program provides funding for educators to create experiences that enrich and enhance student learning. The Foundation partners with individuals, corporations, agencies, and organizations to provide the grant funding.
Child Spree is an annual event that provides back-to-school clothing essentials for over 300 students in need. The program also provides school supplies and backpacks to participating students. This event is our biggest volunteer opportunity of the year.
Innovative School and Department Grants are designed to encourage, facilitate, recognize and reward innovative and creative instructional programs and ideas in education.
The Davis Education Foundation offers schools and departments the opportunity to apply for grants to support innovative programs or projects that promote higher levels of student learning and academic success. The grant proposals must enhance student academic performance and support the stated objectives, goals, and initiatives of the DESK Standards of the Davis School District.
Up to $5,000 may be granted and may be used for resource materials, supplies, equipment, transportation, software or technology.
Davis Education Foundation, along with partnerships with the Bountiful Food Pantry and the Davis Hospital and Medical Center, has focused on making Davis County a "No Hunger Zone." Did you know that almost 17,000 students in our district do not know from where their next meal will come? Such food insecurity adversely impacts our students not only educationally, but also emotionally.
The Kids Closet program is designed to assist schools in providing basic clothing and hygiene essentials for students. Referrals should be completed by school administrators and submitted to the Foundation electronically.
