Grants Overview

2023 Spring Grant Cycle Important Dates
Application Cycle Opens: February 15, 2023
Deadline to Apply: April 15, 2023 at 11:59 PM


Grants are open to any teacher, staff member or administrator in Durango School District 9-R. They are also open to other non-profit organizations with programs that serve the students in Durango 9-R. Grants are intended to assist educators in serving students of all ages, abilities, and academic interest areas.

In giving every application close scrutiny, we consider faculty and district input, educational research, inter- and intra-school collaboration, donor preference, alignment with the Durango 9-R Strategic Plan, and the reviewing committee members’ own experience. It’s an exciting process, one that gives D.E.F. great insight into the vision our teachers and administrators hold for our schools.

Please review the criteria and information for each type of grant, then submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) if your idea aligns with one of our grants funds.
