Our Grant Programs
The quality of education provided to our children directly impacts the quality and growth of our community, our state, and our nation. Our focus, therefore, is to support programs that go beyond what public funds can provide in order to directly enhance students’ knowledge, thinking skills, and career preparation in creative, innovative ways.
Rockport Fulton Education Foundation grants support a wide variety of programs and classroom needs in the RFISD system, some highlights include:
- Funding classroom technology upgrades including Chromebooks, new projectors, and digital whiteboards.
- Partnered with the RFISD ACE Program to launch the Maritime Club.
- Making sure programs such as ROTC and Welding Classes are able to stay in our schools.
- Funding to ensure a world class culinary program is available to students.
Spring Grants are awarded directly to staff and students within the Rockport Fulton ISD by Foundation board members and representatives from the community. The Foundation’s work has been recognized by State Representatives, other foundations, corporate donors, and community members. Surprising teachers with grants to advance educational excellence…That’s what the Grant Patrol is all about!
Pirate’s Treasure Chest Grants allow teachers and principals to enhance their campuses during the year with enrichment learning opportunities that benefit the majority of their campus’ student population.
