The Montgomery County Educational Foundation is a public foundation committed to supporting the public schools in Montgomery County, VA. We believe that the people who know what our schools need are the ones who are in the system, and we provide grants to teachers, students, staff, and school organizations based on a grant proposal review process. Funds are available for all grade levels — preK through 12th.

We support our schools by supplementing their funding as well as by providing funds in areas outside the scope of existing funding.

Examples of potential funding areas include extra materials for teachers, after-school programs for students, and teacher development programs.
