What We Are Looking for

SCHOOL IS COOL 2.0
The new School is Cool 2.0 approach combines lessons learned from the past three years of implementation with new ingredients that make for a successful recipe to impact the ABC’s (Attendance, Behavior, and Course performance) in reading and math. With a strong partnership between the Community Foundation of Broward and Broward County Public School District, middle schools and nonprofits will work together to implement customized, innovative, and high quality projects tailored to meet the individual academic and social-emotional needs of the most struggling middle school students.

Application Information

To meet the needs of the community during the coronavirus crisis, the Community Foundation of Broward may change our usual grantmaking process to get resources where they are needed the most as quickly as possible. As a result:

  1. Grant application guidelines and deadlines may be changed. Check this webpage for future grant application opportunities.
  2. Grants may be renewed or awarded based on pressing community needs, without an RFP process.
  3. Grant applications to fill targeted gaps in community services may be offered by invitation only, via email invitations.

For more information email Stategic Grants Manager, Angelica Rosas at arosas@cfbroward.org.
