Grant Application Assistance

Along with the FCPS Grants Development Office, Educate Fairfax is available to assist FCPS teachers, administrators and support personnel in seeking grant opportunities for programs. If a grant opportunity that you are seeking requires the grant to be paid to a 501c3 non-profit, perhaps we can assist you.

Our Impact on FCPS

Since 2011, we have raised millions of dollars to support FCPS, schools, students and staff.

We work to harness the support of individual and corporate donors within our community to benefit projects and programs across the county.

We can also help individual schools raise funds or apply for grants within our scope of work.
