Office of Grant Development

The Office of Grant Development coordinates the district's grant application process and philanthropic outreach aligned with the district's Strategic Plan. 


Grant Champions is designed to build the capacity of local schools to develop competitive grant proposals by providing professional development, grant resources, and consultative support. Grant Champions serve as the school liaison with the Office of Grant Development. Follow us on Twitter @FCSGrantChamps and review the monthly Grant Alerts for current funding opportunities!


 FCS staff members can access monthly grant alerts on the employee portal

 that compile educational funding opportunities.
