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 equitably serving students of all ages, abilities, and academic interest areas.

When reading grant applications, we consider impact, equity, faculty and district input, related educational research, collaboration, donor preference, and alignment with the Durango 9-R Strategic Plan as well as D.E.F.'s mission. 

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.  We look forward to hearing from you!
