What We Fund

Appleton Education Foundation grants seek to enhance education by funding projects and training for which taxpayer funding is not available. Grants primarily benefit Appleton Area School District students and staff.

  • Choose Your Focus Grants -- Projects that creatively enhance the education and instruction of students in any academic discipline.
  • Professional Development -- The AEF will look favorably at requests for funds to bring speakers to the AASD to address a group of educators on a particular topic of interest.
  • Co-Curricular Education & Training Grants -- Grants support education or training of student or coach participants in co-curricular activities. 
  • Additional grants -- Individual donor funds support a variety of other projects.

What We Don't Fund

  • Operating expenses
  • Conference fees
  • Travel
  • The cost of substitute teachers
  • Previously incurred expenses
