Individual Schools Grants Program

The Kauffman Foundation invests in individual schools that demonstrate the capacity to deliver strong academic outcomes for students in Kansas City. To be eligible for an Individual Schools grant, a district, charter or private school must serve a significant enrollment of lower-income students, demonstrate proven or promising academic outcomes and be located within the six-county metro area (Johnson and Wyandotte counties in Kansas and Cass, Clay, Jackson, and Platte counties in Missouri). These grants enable schools to enhance existing programs, innovate to bring new ideas and approaches to the school, or explore to inform the school’s strategic direction.

We are not accepting applications at this time. If you’re interested in learning more about future education funding opportunities, please sign up using the form on this page.
