Spark Grants

Spark Grants offer an additional opportunity for Helena’s Public School teachers to access funds to provide enrichment opportunities for students. Educators may apply for up to $500 per project and Spark Grants are offered in four cycles per school year.  The Foundation awarded $12,000 in Spark Grants in 2020/2021.

Like our Great Ideas Grants, The Spark Grants program is a competitive process, but with a scaled-down application form. The goal of the Spark Grant program is to offer more flexibility and ease of access for smaller projects. Thank you to the many educators who helped us to shape this new program launched in 2020/2021
