Grants for Knowledge
is a Colorado non-profit organization with a purpose to raise and facilitate access to funds for all grades in the Platte Canyon Schools. Additionally, we encourage innovation and creativity to enrich curricular and extracurricular initiatives.
Grants for Knowledge meets quarterly to review and vote on grant applications submitted by educators in the Platte Canyon School District. To date we have awarded over $200,000 to fund grants for Deer Creek Elementary School, Fitzsimmons Middle School and Platte Canyon High School.
Grants for Knowledge (formerly known as the Platte Canyon Educational Foundation) was born in 1998 and has served the Platte Canyon schools; Deer Creek Elementary, Fitzsimmons Middle, and Platte Canyon High Schools as a volunteer operated, non-profit organization.
Grants for Knowledge will raise both funds and awareness through targeted community events and fundraisers both in person and online through social media. The intent is to maximize the amount of money that can be distributed to worthy projects in the schools and increase the quality of both life and educational experiences for those in the PCSD community.
