FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County Schools will continue utilizing the Find It Fund It online system for our 2017-18 Mini-Grant Program.

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.
Who May Apply?
All Volusia County Public Schools' K-12 teachers and administrative staff are encouraged to apply. It is the policy of FUTURES Foundation that Charter Schools shall not be eligible to apply for grants under the FUTURES Mini-Grant Program, absent extenuating circumstances to be considered by the Board of Directors at its sole discretion from time to time.
For full details of this year's program please review the Mini-Grant application process document.
