ERAF Grant Application Packet.pdf



The East Rochester Alumni Foundation Board is pleased that you are interested in applying for an East Rochester Alumni Foundation (“The Foundation”) grant.

Please bear in mind the Foundation’s mission and goals as you prepare your application.

Our Mission

“To make East Rochester Public Schools the best they can be”

Our Goals

To bring alumni together

To unite the school district, the community and students of today

To raise funds and to make grants for programs critical to the educational system which are not funded in the school district budget

To build a stronger school system, a stronger community and a stronger future for all
East Rochester students

Your grant request should include an assessment of how your program will address some, or all, of the Foundation’s Mission and Goals.  You are welcome to ask questions or discuss ideas with the Foundation’s Grants Chairperson, Anita Mance, or with any other Alumni Foundation Board Member(s) prior to submitting your grant application.

Grants are considered for innovative projects which are not provided for in the East Rochester School District budget.  New and creative projects will be favored.  The Foundation does not provide grant support for projects which benefit a single student and will always consider more favorably those undertakings which benefit a large number of students versus only a few.

Applications may be submitted at any time.  Please remember that prior to any Grant Request being considered by the Foundation’s Board, it must first be reviewed and approved by our District’s Leadership group. The Foundation’s Board typically meets on the third Monday of each month. Meetings are not normally held in July or December.  It will be important that your request is submitted several months before funds are actually needed.
