Grant Writing

In 2010-2011, Fairmont received over $5000 from the Ed Fund. In Spring 2011, there was a workshop that introduced parents to other funding sources such as Donor's Choose. And in 2011-2012, Fairmont garnered more Ed Fund grants than any other elementary school in the District.

Grant writing is a great way to raise funds for our school, for a grade, or for a classroom. If you're interested in writing a grant for Fairmont school grant writing team, contact the Fairmont PTA.

Please visit the EdFund web site for more details about our grants program and other grants opportunities.
