Mission, Vision, and Values
Established in 1998, the New Rochelle Fund for Educational Excellence (the Fund) supports our school system and its extraordinary, diverse student body through advancing equity, excellence and inspiring all public school students. The Fund partners with the City School District of New Rochelle and engages the broader New Rochelle community to develop, fund and implement high-quality educational and enrichment programming that enhances the school experience and helps students thrive and succeed along their educational journey.
The Fund’s hallmark Grants Program is intended to supplement an instructional need or enrichment opportunity, or subsidize a program/project that might not otherwise happen or reach the ideal scale. We encourage applicants to be thoughtful and creative in their grant requests. When developing your proposal, please keep in mind that the Fund will give preference to programs that are compatible with City School District of New Rochelle curricula, and have measurable objectives, as well as those that encourage collaboration across classes, disciplines, teams, and schools.
We accept applications from administrators, teachers, parents and students across the entire District. STUDENTS ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO APPLY.
Timeline and Budget: SUBMISSION DEADLINE IS FRIDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2023.
Notification of grant decisions is projected for early November, for projects to take place this academic year. For this Grants cycle, applicants can request funding up to $1,500. Another cycle may be introduced in early 2024.
