Teacher Grants

Each year, Minnetonka teachers submit grant requests for creative, educational ideas and programs they would like to implement for students. Since its inception in 1999, our Teacher Grant Program has awarded $910,000 in grants.

In 2016-17, the foundation allocated $53,218 in Teacher Grants and another $44,034 in classroom grants for furnishings through the district’s innovative Design for Learning program. Our investment in direct classroom support totaled $97,252 for the 2016-17 school year.

Teacher Grants enhance all academic subject areas, technology, fine arts, early childhood education, special education and community service at all Minnetonka public school sites. Without the Foundation’s Teacher Grant support, most of these enrichments would not have been possible.

Funding for some of the fine arts grants is generously provided by the Minnetonka Alumni Association’s Fine Arts Endowment Fund.
