A2Z Personnel and The Drive 107.9 FM are teaming up to show our commitment to education by offering a monthly $200 grant program called We Support Our Schools to help fund classroom projects so that teachers do not have to pay for these expenses out of their own pockets.
The program began in January, 2015 and continues each month during the school year. Each month a teacher and/or class will be presented with a check for $200 to assist in attaining their goals. No awards will be made during the months of July or August. The grant program will serve public schools K-12 in Ravalli County.
Anyone aware of a special project that would enhance the educational objectives in a classroom is encouraged to apply. There is no limit to the number of times or projects one can apply for, however, applications will be considered for the entire academic school year. Awards will be chosen on the second Wednesdays of each month through a committee made up of employees of A2Z Personnel and The Drive 107.9 FM.
Applicants may submit the information via email – firstname.lastname@example.org or snail mail. Information needed to apply for the grant is available below. Additionally, our office personnel can help answer questions.
