Grant Opportunities for TCAPS


The Community Foundation has two competitive grant opportunities specifically for Traverse City Area Public Schools (TCAPS). Grant applications will be accepted year-round, reviewed annually in November and awards are presented in December.


Guidelines for Eligible Requests:

The TCAPS Academic Excellence Endowment (previously known as the Assisting Children's Education Endowment) supports a variety of K-12 programs within TCAPS to help students and teachers develop and implement innovative ideas that are student-focused, curriculum-based and promote academic excellence. Grant awards support K-12 classroom activities throughout TCAPS that are not otherwise funded by the District's operation budget. 2022 Amount Available: $7,500 Learn more about the TCAPS Academic Excellence Endowment
