      Grants Program

The FEF Grant Selection Committee oversees the selection and distribution of funds. Grants are awarded at the Foundation's annual Board of Director's Meeting in May for the upcoming academic year.

      Fund Raising:

The Franklin Education Foundation hosts an annual Adult Spelling or Trivia Bee and a Casino Night. In 2007-2008, monies raised at through both events provided for $25,000 to fund 15 grants.

The annual Bee allows teams of three to enter and enjoy friendly competition while contributing to the FEF grants program and endowment fund.

Businesses, organizations, groups or individuals may sponsor teams in the Bee for $300. Multi-sponsor teams are accepted. Others who wish to support the Bee but do not wish to sponsor a team may make a donation in any amount.
