Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Rhode Island individuals and organizations in eligible locations to enhance the educational experience of students in local public schools. Funding is intended to provide projects, services, and programs not currently offered to students. Preference will be shown to requests made by administrators, staff, teachers, students, parents, and community members of the local school district. Applicants must be located in Westerly.

The Westerly Education Endowment Fund (WEEF) was founded in March of 2001 by a group of concerned Westerly citizens in partnership with The Rhode Island Foundation. Its purpose is to augment educational opportunities within the community of Westerly and to offer the opportunity for an enhanced educational experience to all Westerly students. The town of Westerly is the first in the state to partner with The Rhode Island Foundation to build a permanent endowment for the public schools.

WEEF will continue to strengthen the learning environments with its support. The Westerly Education Endowment Fund’s 2021-2022 grant process seeks to continue to generate opportunities to empower educators to explore ideas that promote student growth. At this time, teaching and learning are demanding unique ways and creative thinking to achieve purposeful planning and motivate student interest and participation. As these circumstances remain challenging, the Westerly Educational Endowment Fund wishes to be an important funding source for grant initiatives that enhance and enrich the learning environment with resources and materials to assist in the successful delivery of the district’s curriculum outcomes.

The goal of the Fund is not to replace the school budget, but to expand projects, programs, and services beyond those currently offered for students in Westerly’s public schools. Grants from the Westerly Education Endowment Fund may support a broad range of projects and services proposed by students, teachers, administrators, parents or members of the community of the Westerly School District — any individual or organization that works toward enhancing the educational experience in Westerly public schools.
