Through its grants programs, NAES supports its current members and their efforts on a variety of fronts. These include Episcopal identity, equity and justice, partnerships with Episcopal schools in Haiti, leadership development, and the spiritual and professional growth of school leaders.
Below is information about how your member school can participate in these grants programs:
Outreach Fund Grants
Each school year NAES distributes 10% of its budgeted Annual Fund goal (but not less than $12,000) as grants to members, associate members, and regional, state, or diocesan Episcopal schools organizations. These grants support projects commensurate with the mission and philosophy of the Association.
2015-2016 Outreach Fund Grants
June 1, 2015 was the application deadline for grants to be awarded for use in the 2015-2016 school year beginning July 1, 2015.
Information about the 2016-2017 Outreach Fund grants cycle will be posted here in the spring of 2016.
Haiti Partnership Grants
All 2015-2016 Haiti Partnership Grant funds have been awarded as of December 15, 2106. Thank you for your interest. Please return to this page for information about future grant opportunities of this kind.
Grants will fund activities that would enable schools to establish, enhance or expand a partnership program by providing funds for schools needing assistance for delegations to travel to Haiti, with priority for those exploring or establishing new partnerships.
Grants will be awarded on a rolling basis until all grant funds are expended for the year. The grant amount may not exceed $2,500. A school must be a NAES member for both the current year in which it applies and the year in which the grant is received, with all NAES dues paid in full.
NAES gratefully acknowledges the Shield-Ayres Foundation whose generous support of the Haiti Partnership Program has made this program possible.
Episcopal Urban School Alliance (EUSA) Grants
Through the generosity of individuals and foundations, NAES has established a rotating grants program for Episcopal Urban School Alliance (EUSA) members to further institutional planning and board development, professional development of faculty and staff, and marketing and recruiting efforts.
Eligibility for these grants is limited to schools that are:
- NAES member schools that are members of EUSA for both the year your school applies and year for which you receive a grant, with all dues and fees fully paid; and
- Regular participants in EUSA-related events.
2015-2016 EUSA Grants
Friday, September 4, 2015 was the application deadline for grants to be awarded for use in the 2015-2016 school year beginning July 1, 2015. The application process is now closed.
