Mini-Grant - Find It Fund It Volusia!

FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County Schools will continue utilizing the Find It Fund It online system for our 2017-18 Mini-Grant Program. Beginning June 1, 2017 we'll be accepting applications for the funding of projects which demonstrate innovative and effective ways to meet students' needs and increase motivation to learn on Chrome browser which works best! 

Grants of up to $1,000 each may be submitted for projects and applications are limited to no more than two (2) per teacher. However, there is no limit of applications per school.

The FUTURES Mini-Grant Program's objective is to encourage and support teachers and administrative staff who have great ideas for creative use of curriculum that will provide enhanced learning experiences for students.  Mini-Grants enable the purchase of special materials and resources for the classroom and are intended to support projects that are not provided for within school budgets or through other means.
