Classroom Grants

(Formerly Mini-Grants)

Applications for Jordan Education Foundation (JEF) CLASSROOM GRANTS   

(formerly MiniGrants for Teachers and CashforClassrooms) 

will be accepted Monday, August 15 through Friday, October 28, 2016.



PURPOSE: The CLASSROOM GRANTS Program (formerly Mini Grants for Teachers program), is used to fund a teacher’s innovative and creative classroom projects that enrich standard curriculum and directly enhance learning opportunities for students and encourage business involvement in schools in the Jordan School District.


ELIGIBILITY: Any current FULL-TIME teacher in Jordan School District (Utah) may apply for funding. Those individuals who received grant funding in previous year must wait until the following year before applying again.


AWARD AMOUNTS: The maximum amount of each mini-grant is $500. Since funds are limited, projects costing less than $500 allow the Foundation to help as many teachers and classrooms as possible. A team of full-time teachers (three or more) working together may apply for a single grant but the maximum amount will not exceed $1,500.


RESTRICTIONS: The following categories are not eligible for funding: Salaries, honorariums, stipends, travel, field trips, incentive awards, and food.


REQUIREMENTS: Every Cash for Classrooms application must include the Principal’s signature of approval indicating that they have reviewed and approved the application. Applications are available in the fall.



This year we are using DONORS CHOOSE to potentially increase the number of grants awarded. This year’s application is a three‐part process: 

1. Open the JEF application link above or on our front page at   

2. Go to Create a Donors Choose account and project. Use the criteria provided within the JEF application to describe your project. Don’t wait, the earlier you post your project, the better your chance will be to receive funding.

3. Provide contact and project‐specific information and the link to your Donors Choose project within the JEF application. (This is how we’ll know which projects to fund).
