The La Crosse Public Education Foundation offers several opportunities for School District staff — and nonprofit organizations working directly with a school in the District — to apply for grants to support projects that enhance the education of students in the School District of La Crosse.

Gold Star Grants are available twice annually and support innovation and proven practices, plus LPEF offers specific grants for staff development, music education and the arts and humanities. Applications may be submitted by any teacher, staff member, parent or student in the School District of La Crosse, or by a nonprofit organization with a demonstrated link or partnership with a school in the District. Grant awards vary. The average grant is about $1,500, with the largest grants typically in the range of $5,000 to $7,500. The next application deadline is Feb. 22, 2021.

Freedland Shoah (Holocaust) Education Grants are available to support projects that advance the understanding of the Holocaust, or teach students to recognize events and beliefs that made the Holocaust possible, and relate them to current events. Applications may be accepted at any time, but funding is limited. Click here for more details and application forms.

LPEF’s Rapid Response Grants program has been temporarily suspended due to fundraising shortfalls caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Further updates will be posted here when the program can be restarted.
