Hempfield Teacher Grants

The Hempfield Foundation Grant Program is designed to enrich and enhance the lives of students in the classroom and allow teachers to try creative ideas without incurring financial burden.

The foundation has funded a variety of innovative programs in all disciplines from the visual and performing arts, to athletic programs and academic achievement.

2020-2021 Hempfield Teacher Grant Program:


  • Hempfield Foundation Grant requests should be aligned with Hempfield School District Curriculum.
  • Requests should be research-based, creative, innovative, motivational, enriching, and instructional.
  • Only submit requests for instructional materials that are not otherwise included in the district budget. Consult your building principal on building budget matters relating to your grant application.
  • Grant applications should be signed and approved by the building principal or direct supervisor.
  • Grant applications with a technology component must be approved by the district's Director of Institutional Technology.
  • First Round grant applications for the 2020 - 2021 school year must be received June 30, 2020. The second round for grant applications will run from November 15 until December 15, 2020.
  • Individual grant amounts are evaluated by the Hempfield Foundation Board and will be commensurate with the size of the target audience and impact of the project.
  • The Hempfield Foundation reserves the right to fund a grant, either fully or partially, depending on the resources available.
  • A list of matching grants or any additional funding sources for the grant activity should accompany all requests.
