Since 2012, CB Cares Educational Foundation has awarded more than $115,000 in innovative learning grants. As Central Bucks School District’s community partner, CB Cares Educational Foundation provides Innovative Learning Grants (ILGs) to encourage teachers to pilot new ideas and bring to life the ideas of these visionary educators that wouldn’t be possible within the district’s regular budget students in the arts, science, technology, engineering, math, leadership, and wellness.
Grants may be awarded to teachers, administrators, or support staff of CBSD and have a direct benefit on the students in the district. Grant projects are typically $1,000, but may be more if they impact a larger number of students across the district.
Grants are made possible by generous support from our Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) partners: Fred Beans Auto Dealerships, Hatboro Federal Savings, Univest, and Weis Markets. Projects and programs supported with EITC funds are restricted to state-approved categories and must be innovative in nature.
