The Great Ideas! Grants Program

This innovative program was established in the fall of 1992 to fund creative curriculum related classroom projects which directly enhance learning opportunities for students in Indian River County. These grants are highly competitive and have a built in component which requires measurable outcomes and evaluations. To date, the Great Ideas! Grant Program has infused millions in innovative educational enhancements in classrooms throughout Indian River County. During the 20013/2014 school year nearly $120,000 was awarded to Indian River County classrooms and teachers.
The Great Ideas! Grants are funded by the John's Island Foundation, The John's Island Community Service League, The Clint S. Malone Memorial Foundation, AT&T, Motorola, The Indian RIver Community Foundation, Enterprise Holdings Foundation, the Florida State Legislature and private individual donations.  Past funders have included Impact 100, Syngenta Crop Protection, Inc, PNC Bank, Liberty Medical Supply, and the Bank of America Foundation.
The Education Foundation raises the grant dollars on a yearly basis. All grant opportunities will be based on secured funding at that time.
