IEF Grants

IEF funding is independent of the CSD (Community School District) budget, although school administration approval is required for all public-school projects we support. IEF seeks to promote innovative experiments that may promote new teaching methods, focus on underserved groups, or encourage team efforts to launch new programs not included in the annual school budget.
