The Santa Fe Texas Education Foundation manages two grant programs:

    1. Classroom Wish List is for requests up to $500.
    2. Grants for Great Ideas is for larger projects that cost $501 or more.


    Classroom Wish Lists

     Classroom Wish List requests are for educational items for your classroom that cost $500 or less. The projects are shared with the public, who can donate to the projects (similar to "crowdfunding").

    To submit your online submission, please click HERE and follow the steps. You wil need to submit a new Classroom Wish List each school year.


    Grants for Great Ideas

    This year the deadline is November 4, and awards will be announced in December. There is no longer a spring grant cycle. In the spring, we award grants to Teachers-of-the Year.
