2020-2021 Grantmaking

In spring 2021, Rose Youth Foundation will make grants totaling $60,000 to address the historic and persistent education achievement gap that has been made worse or highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Grants will fund programs and projects that create a safe, inclusive, and stable learning environment for children in kindergarten through fifth grade and efforts that work to close the learning equity gap.

We invite nonprofit organizations (including charter management organizations), districts, and schools (district, innovation, and charter) with programs assisting students in kindergarten through fifth grade, and/or their teachers, to respond to this request for proposals. All applications must be received through Rose Community Foundation’s online grants portal by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 6, 2021.
