Competitive Grants

Applications open August 2021

The Tri-Creek Education Foundation (TCEF) is proud to announce its 19th annual Competitive Grant Opportunity. 

Due to the many contributions received from generous donors who wish to support classroom projects and programs, the Foundation is able to offer up to $20,000 to finance competitive grants!


Applications due

October, 2021 

The application process is easy:

Remember to include the budget worksheet and to allow time for your principal to comment and sign off on your proposal.

The grant application process is not limited to teachers; all Tri-Creek employees are eligible.

New, innovative proposals will be given priority for funding.  Projects that were previously funded through the competitive grant process will be considered only after new projects are considered, if grant funds remain.  Please be aware that the Foundation does not fund teacher stipends.


Grant recipients will be notified by and be presented information packets at the November Tri-Creek school board meeting.


We look forward to receiving an abundance of applications and wish good luck to all who apply.  If you have any questions, please call Lynne Haberlin at 219-781-3087 or email
