Classroom Grants

Support Student Achievement


Our classroom grant program recognizes the incredible ideas our teachers and staff have for their students to experience learning in a new way! The Classroom Grant Program supports projects that provide a unique learning opportunity for students that build technical skills, practice employability skills and explores skills. To date, we have awarded more than $150,000 to teachers and staff in Cabarrus County Schools.

For the 2021-2022 school year, CCEF will be offering several special classroom grants this Fall. 

  • David Fitts Community Service Classroom Grant provides an opportunity for students to experience the impact they can make in their community through service. 
  • Strick Dalton Innovation Classroom Grant seeks to reward CCS teachers who are innovative in their approach to teaching by funding a project that highlights these attributes and provides an amazing student learning opportunity. 
  • Bert Thomas Storytelling Classroom Grant promotes how powerful creativity and storytelling can be. This grant supports students as they experience tell a story through one of the many venues: writing, puppetry, music, oral recitations, art, dance, plays, fine arts, and other creative aspects. 

Pre K - 12th grade classroom grants may be offered later in the year depending on funding.
