School Spirit Grants




What is School Spirit?

School Spirit – two simple words that create a flood of memories – pep rallies, homecoming dances, best friends, broken romances, and a time where anything was possible and you were invincible.  

Today, School Spirit is a way to give back to the schools that prepared you for life. School districts are facing challenges never before seen in the history of public education. Educators are being asked to do significantly more – with less resources.

In 2000, the Green Bay Area Public School District formed an educational endowment to support excellence in teaching and learning. Mini-grants are awarded to District staff to explore creative ways of delivering educational experiences. The most successful efforts can become the basis for district-wide programs, and serve as models for school districts across the country.


Make a difference

Many of us have had teachers who made a difference in our lives. Now it’s time to give back and help a teacher reach their dreams. Your gift to School Spirit can help take a classroom project from interesting to extraordinary. You can designate your donation to the following categories:

  • Arts & Libraries

  • Innovative Education

  • Emerging Needs

  • Facilities & Technology Enhancement

  • Enriched Learning Opportunities

Or have your donation honor your alma mater, a favorite teacher, or a former student. Send your tax-deductible gift to:
