Methacton Education Foundation Grant Application Process

Application Process:

Contact Stephanie Sawyer (ssawyer@methacton.org), Pam Craig (pcraig@methacton.org) or Matt Alzamora (malzamora@methacton.org) or your building principle to discuss your grant application idea, and to review the grant application process.

Application Review:  Grant applications should be submitted within the timeframe specified within the Funding Cycle document posted on the foundation’s website. Upon submission, the grant will be directed to the appropriate building principal and then to the superintendent for review. If a grant proposal receives administrative approval it will be forwarded to the Methacton Education Foundation Program Support Committee for their review. The committee reviews each application and votes on its merits; approving the application as submitted, approving the application with revisions, or denying the application at time of submission.

Notification:  All applicants will be notified within the time frame specified in the attached “Funding Cycle document. If a grant is denied for submission or approval during the Application Review Process, it will be returned to the applicant with pertinent notations and/or suggestions.  If a grant should need immediate attention due to a time factor, please contact Shannon Peffer to discuss. Typically, out of cycle grant requests will not be fulfilled.

Grant Summary Requirements: The grant recipient(s) will provide a written summary detailing the process, procedures, and outcomes resulting from the grant. Summary should include assessment and evaluations of S.M.A.R.T. goals outlined in the proposal including both qualitative and quantitative impact on students.  Photos, video, and/or other forms of documentation (ex: newsletters, notes from students/educators, etc.) that demonstrate how the funds were used should also be included. Receipts and/or contracts for expenses should be submitted as required for reimbursement (see #5 above).  A report guideline document has been posted.
