Education Grant Program

All Butte County schools serving students in grades K-12 are encouraged to apply to the Butte Strong Fund Education Grant Program.


Only school administrators can apply, and only once on behalf of each school. Grant sizes are typically $1,000 to $10,000 based on school size.

​Funding will focus on

  • Teacher or staff professional development for those seeking to learn new and better ways to educate students, keep up to date with changes in technology and research, or gain a deeper understanding of their subject matter

  • Academic student groups and clubs with innovative and hands-on projects that will increase student learning and expand achievement

  • Projects that are not covered by other funding or that would be dependent on individual or family contributions

  • Projects that provide opportunities for the socio-economically disadvantaged


Applications due by Nov. 30, 2022
