November 2020: Excellence in Equity Grants



The Montclair Fund for Educational Excellence (MFEE) will award one-time significant grants to promote racial and socio-economic equity in all 11 Montclair public schools. Each elementary and middle school will receive up to $10,000 and the high school, since it serves the largest number of students, will receive up to $50,000 in grant money. 


The Excellence in Equity grants are designed to fund a project or initiative that is collaboratively-shaped by a diverse group of school stakeholders, including teachers, administrators, parents, and students (where applicable) to address racial and socio-economic inequity. 


Proposals will be evaluated on:

the quality of the project

demonstrated need for the project and

demonstrated buy-in across a wide swath of the individual school community

We at MFEE believe strongly that without racial and socio-economic equity, there cannot be educational excellence. We also believe that Montclair is well-positioned to address the inequities that lead to a persistent opportunity gap amongst our students.  Montclairians have the creativity, thoughtfulness, and will to make big changes, and MFEE is honored to provide the resources to support these changes in all of our schools.
