Legacy Foundation Invites Applications for Classroom Champions Mini-Grant Program

The Legacy Foundation is thrilled to announce the launch of the Classroom Champions Mini-Grant program for the new academic year. Teachers and associates in Wapello County are invited to apply for this fantastic opportunity to elevate their classrooms and create extraordinary learning experiences for their students.

The grant cycle is now open, and Legacy Foundation is accepting applications. New this year, we will be reviewing applications the first week of each month until the allocated funds run out. We urge all passionate educators to submit their creative applications at the earliest opportunity to secure their chance to receive up to $750 in individual grant funding.

The Classroom Champions Mini-Grant program aims to provide the necessary resources for teachers and associates to take their classrooms to the next level. These grants can be utilized to purchase supplies, equipment, technology, engaging learning kits, and even professional development opportunities. Last year, we awarded $15,000 to 30 classrooms across Wapello County schools. We believe that by empowering teachers, we are cultivating a brighter future for our community.
