Cash for Classroom Grants

 

This year over $76,000.00 was awarded to classrooms across Jordan School District in the form of Cash for Classrooms grants.  Jordan Education Foundation received 121 applications ranging from $200.00 to $1500.00 and 100 projects were funded.  Grants will be used to purchase language immersion libraries, guided reading books, IPads, technology, math manipulatives, listening centers, sensory items, software, and other valuable classroom tools. Cash for Classrooms grants will impact over 23,000 students and 200 teachers this year!

This year’s funding for Jordan Education Foundation’s Cash for Classrooms came from private donations by Comcast, the Ashton Family Foundation, Rio Tinto/Kennecott, the Wheeler Foundation, Rocky Mountain Power and the Dee Foundation.  Jordan School District employees also donate personally to Cash for Classrooms through monthly payroll deductions. 

Congratulations to all our winners!

Our Challenge

Child poverty and hunger are reaching alarming levels in Utah.  In our communities, 26% of Jordan School District students are on free or reduced lunch - a measurement of students identified as being at or below poverty line standards.  Currently, there are 13,336 economically disadvantaged students and 1,525 who qualify as being homeless in our school district.  Tragically, many of these students are also not eating well at home on weekends. They should be eating seven meals between Friday lunch and Monday breakfast, but they don't.  When they don't eat, they cannot perform in the classroom, play or exercise.
