Foundation for Madison's Public Schools Foundation for the Future Grant

In alignment with the Foundation for Madison’s Public Schools 2018-2021 strategic plan, the Foundation will not have a competitive grants program for the foreseeable future. The Foundation will continue to support schools through school endowments, designated endowments, and ABC or passthrough funds. In addition, the Foundation is working to broaden their impact on and support of all MMSD teachers with a crowdfunding platform and a teacher supply program. Stay tuned for updates as those initiatives progress!

MMSD Innovation Grants

We are excited to align the Innovation Grant program with our new Strategic Framework.  This grant program is currently on hold and not accepting new applications at this time.  Our newly formed Innovation Team is working now to determine how to best leverage these funds to support the exciting work being done all over the district. We will post more details later this school year.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Andrew Statz at

From 2014-2018, the Innovation Grant Fund provided funding of up to $30,000 per award to support the planning and implementation of an innovative school-based project for one to two school years. See a list of past Innovation Grant recipients.
