This school year the Foundation will fund approximately 650 classroom grants, an all-time record. It is a significant increase from just two years ago when they funded 91 classroom grants, last year JEF funded 275. The grants support things like STEM, books and literacy, arts, music, technology and special education. This year the grants will total approximately $400,000.

The number of classroom grants funded by the foundation keeps growing thanks to generous donors like “Scheels.” As a part of the retailer’s recent ‘Day of Giving,’ Scheels donated $10,000 to the Jordan Education Foundation – all of the money will help to fund classroom grants.

Thanks to all of the caring community partners for their generosity and support for teachers and students in the classroom!
