Grant Writing

Grants keep our garden growing, our technology updated, and our teachers excited to teach!

If you’re a good writer and are willing to spend some of your free time researching and writing grants for various school projects, we need you!  Grants range from small (a few paragraphs) to large scale (several pages). The committee is responsible for writing grants that will fund the needs of Glenmoor school and its classrooms.  It also searches for interesting grants that will support school needs, or will respond to requests for support on writing grants that have already been identified.  The grants may be in the area of technology, science, gardening, the arts, or wherever there is a need.
