Grants to Virginia school-based staff members in eligible locations for projects to enhance student learning and classroom success. Funding may be requested for projects benefiting individual classrooms or projects that are multi-grade or multi-classroom. Eligible proposals benefit Loudoun’s public school students.

Educators make a difference every day in the lives of their students and often spend their own money to provide creative learning opportunities. The Loudoun Education Foundation partners with the Claude Moore Charitable Foundation to provide educators with monetary support for special projects that help students be successful in the classroom and beyond.

Primary consideration will be given to proposals that: involve and/or affect as many students as possible; benefit a diverse student group; are creative and innovative; supplement and/or enhance the standard curriculum and ordinary teaching methods; support a program or project with measurable results; and promote inter-classroom, interdisciplinary and/or joint teacher projects.
