Teacher Application

While the Horizon Foundation is building its funds to offer larger grants we want to let you know we are seeking grant requests from teachers.
If you have an idea that will support a classroom goal apply now. We will review requests at our monthly meetings. Use our online application with a short explanation of your purpose*. We are offering these grants until the end of this school year and we hope we can assist in complementing a classroom activity.

*We do not want to conflict with District policies so for that reason we are not accepting field trip assistance requests.
