One of the foundation's key activities is developing and funding innovative ideas from Durham’s students, educators and school communities that bolster student success and support growth and retention of Durham’s teachers and principals. 

As part of the foundation's launch, we are working with people in our schools and school communities to design grants that meet their needs and to develop selection processes that are equitable and reflect DPSF's values. As DPSF's mission is to support students, educators and families in Durham Public Schools, grants will only be available to support projects and initiatives that benefit those in DPS (no funds will be available for charter, private or home schools).

Grant applications will launch within the next year. Please sign-up here if you want to be notified when there are updates to the grant processes and when grant applications open:
