Geography teacher grant deadline is Oct. 15

Applications for the Geography Knowledge Fund in the Idaho Community Foundation will be accepted from Oct. 1-15. This year grants of up to $300 each will be considered for secondary classrooms in Idaho. The online application will be available online starting Oct. 1 at  www.idcomfdn.org.

The grant can be used for new maps or globes for the classroom, subscriptions to geography publications, funding to bring a speaker or event into the classroom to expose students to diverse cultures, or other types of projects. Boisean Linda Grable-Curtis established this fund to further the study of geography by Idaho students.

The Idaho Community Foundation is a statewide public nonprofit organization whose goal is to have a permanent endowment of charitable dollars that will serve Idaho forever.ICF manages charitable funds on behalf of organizations, families, individuals and businesses. Each named fund has a designated purpose and distributes grants or scholarships to support a charity or cause. A gift of any size to an ICF fund helps increase the size and number of grants and scholarships awarded to local nonprofits and students.
