Staff Grants from the Worthington Education Foundation

The Worthington Educational Foundation (WEF) is a non-profit organization that partners with the Worthington School District by providing grants that benefit our schools and students. Applications may be submitted by any staff member of Worthington Schools.

Successful grant projects will add value to students but aren’t in conflict with the current curriculum. Attached are examples of successful grant applications.

The primary goal of the WEF is to fund initiatives that support and enhance, but do not duplicate the educational programs of the Worthington School District.

There is no specific monetary limit on the size of award. Funds may be requested for projects that provide direct benefit to students and for materials and equipment not routinely supplied by the district or building. The WEF will not fund requests for food, transportation, or other consumables, or for performance contracts for district staff. Requests for flexible seating, fidget equipment, iPads or Smart Boards will not be funded.

Applications are due Friday, April 3, by submission to Printed applications will NOT be accepted. Please note that a review and signature is required by your Building Principal and District Administrator (Kim Brown, Director of Special Education, Neil Gupta, Director of Secondary Education, or Patrick Callaghan, Director of Elementary Education).
