The Alumni Foundation wishes to remind you that there are grants available for teachers/staff through the Amherst Central Alumni Foundation Grant Committee.
These grants are supported by the generosity of our alumni.
The Grant Committee strives to award grants that benefit the most students in the Amherst Schools.
Each grant application is carefully reviewed. The Grant Committee then presents the grant and makes a recommendation to the Foundation Board of Directors for a vote. The Foundation meets on the third Thursday of every month.
If you are interested in applying for a grant, please complete grant application below and include a letter detailing your grant request.
The deadline for grants for the 2021-2022 fiscal year are November 1, 2021 and March 1, 2022. Grants may be submitted to the Amherst Alumni Office located in the high school by interoffice mail, regular mail, or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that the process for awarding grants takes approximately two months:
Please keep this process in mind especially if you have a time sensitive grant request.
There is also a link at bottom of the page that gives a snapshot of grants the Alumni Foundation has given over the last 16 years.
If you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
