Teachers Seeking Funding

Because of donors who care about education, the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation has funding available to support classroom education projects in Linn County public schools for grades K-12 that cannot be funded through the school’s budget.

The Community Foundation partners with DonorsChoose.org to match gifts to help fund classroom projects in Linn County, Iowa.  DonorsChoose.org is a nonprofit organization that makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need.

The 2016, $25,000 match funding from the Fund for Educational Excellence was first available on August 8, 2016, and the match dollars were used up on October 14, 2016. FFEE’s funding supported 86 teacher projects benefiting 8,602 Linn County students! To view the teacher projects supported in 2016, go to the Community Foundation’s Partner Page.
