Staff Idea Grant Application

For Implementation during 2020-2021 School Year

Deadline: February 14, 2020

The Hastings Public Schools Foundation's Staff Idea Grants support projects that are beyond the resources of the Hastings Public Schools general operating budget. This program is made possible by the generosity of HPS Foundation donors.

Proposals should have a clear mission to serve students and/or the District for $1,000 or less. Foundation Board Members will review grant applications using the criteria and point values shared on the Narrative page to determine grant recipients.

Grants are awarded for projects that offer enhancement of learning for students in the classroom and/or special projects.

Conference funding is considered when teachers, building administrators, and District administrators agree that the conference is a priority in helping reach building/District goals. 

Questions? Call Jessica McAndrew at the Foundation Office at 402-461-7564 or on her cell phone at 402-469-3760 or email her at

Grant recipient lists will be shared via email with all applicants by March 14, 2020.
