LIBERTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS STAFF,
You make LPS shine! Thank you for all you do to make every day of the school year incredible for our students - you instruct, inspire, encourage, strengthen and prepare.
The Liberty Education Foundation supports you through offering grants that allow you to enrich educational experiences. Our grants make large and small projects possible! Learner Led Grants give students the opportunity to be involved in the grant process. Below are details and links to our different grants.

learner led grants
Fueling the ideas and dreams of our learners is one of the best ways to promote lifelong learning and innovation in the classroom. For this reason, we have introduced student-initiated grant opportunities. Students may request $100 - $1,000 to create or enhance a learning experience. All students will be encouraged to recruit a staff ambassador as they collaborate with their peers to develop unique projects for their classrooms or schools. Groups will put together creative video proposals for this fun competition.
Applications will be accepted from October 14 - November 14, 2019.
Grant recipients will receive funds in December.

Excellence in Education Grants are the Foundation's largest grants (maximum award is $3,000 and the minimum is $1,000). These grants fund large-scale projects that will impact multiple classrooms, grades or schools. With an Excellence in Education Grant you can make reality what you've been imagining for your students!
Applications will be accepted from February 5 - March 5, 2020.
Recipients will receive funds in April.
We invite LPS to support the Foundation for the duration of the school year. You can sign up for payroll deduction, send a check or donate online.
