Fall 2024 grants are being accepted through September 12th.

Since 2005 when the LVEF was founded, the organization has contributed more than $850,000 to benefit the LVISD and participants in the educational journey.

Teachers and staff members are encouraged to apply for the grant. The funds can be used to support specific lesson goals, such as new equipment for the STEM program, or put towards a general learning initiative for all students, including buying new software for use within the school. Qualification for the grant falls under the Campus Action Plan and funds must be used to enhance student academic performance in addition to supporting classroom objectives.

Applications are due September 12th.


For those wishing to apply for a grant, we request that you check the website periodically and monitor social media and email for important updates regarding the duration for which submissions are accepted.

All teachers and staff are encouraged to apply for grants that enhance learning. Grant money provided can help to provide hands-on learning experiences that supplement learning such as glasses to view solar eclipses, classroom supplies that extend into STEM technology such as robotics kits and more. 

Grant money can also be used to purchase software or supplies that directly impact programs and students–regardless of the lesson that is to be implemented, if the purchase requested is to positively affect learning time, LVEF is on board to support when funds are available.

To qualify for a grant, the grant must support goals and initiatives of the Campus Action Plan, in addition to being able to enhance student academic performance while supporting classroom objectives.

LVEF Special Funding Request Form

The purpose of this form is to provide a means for the La Vernia Education Foundation Board to review special funding requests made by La Vernia ISD administration & staff.  It is not intended to replace the Innovative Teaching Grant Application, but rather offer supplemental, real-time funding for unanticipated, immediate needs.

Submissions will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis.  There are no restrictions on the amount that can be requested, but all funds must fall within the Board approved budget.
