LOGAN – The Cache Education Foundation has recently awarded nearly $100,000 to teachers and classrooms in the Cache County School District. The majority of those funds (over $91,000) were given through the non-profit organization’s Tools for Schools grant program.

Through the Tools for Schools grant program, non-consumable resources are donated to schools and classrooms throughout the district. Every school within the Cache County School District received a grant ranging anywhere from $1,195 to $5,700.

Teachers and schools apply to the foundation for the grants that directly benefit the students and enhance their educational experience. With these grants, the schools and teachers are able to purchase technology for the classroom, such as iPads, or other non-consumable products like math manipulatives.

In addition to the Tools for Schools grants, the Cache Education Foundation also recently awarded over $5,000 in grants from the Just My Wish Foundation. These grants were separated into two categories: literacy grants and grants for the gifted and talented.

The foundation is now transitioning into another phase of giving. According to the foundation’s Facebook page, it is now seeking applications for its Hats Off awards. These financial awards are given specifically to teachers. Teacher nominations for these prestigious awards are submitted by students, parents, community members, other teachers, administrators, PTA and school community councils. Besides nominations, the Cache Education Foundation is seeking donations from individuals and/or businesses to make the program possible.

For more information about how to nominate a teacher or donate to the Hats Off awards, people are encouraged to call 755-2022.
