Seed Grants

What is a Seed Grant?  Seed Grants are grants made to educators who have ideas for innovative educational projects for which funding is not readily available through the regular North White School Corporation financial sources. The North White Education Fund is particularly interested in programs that demonstrate innovative and effective ways to meet students’ needs, enhance student achievement, increase motivation to learn, or address educational needs of the community.

Who May Apply?  Any educator of North White School Corporation is encouraged to apply for a grant.

How Do I Apply?  The grant application can be downloaded using the links at the bottom of this page. Additional forms or information may be requested from the Superintendent of Schools.

How Are Grants Awarded?  A Grant Committee is comprised of representatives from the Board of Directors who will review all applications. They will make recommendations to the full Board of Directors. The Board of Directors will award all grants. Grant applicants may receive funds for materials, equipment and other items necessary to carry out the proposed project.

Ways to Give

Cash is the simplest and most efficient way to make a gift to the Community Foundation.

The transfer of appreciated securities is one of the most popular ways of giving to the Community Foundation.

Will or Living Trust
The Community Foundation may be granted a portion of your remaining assets in your will.

Life Insurance
You can donate your life insurance policy to the Community Foundation and may receive an immediate tax deduction for the cash value.

Real Property
You may donate all or part of the ownership of your residential, farm or commercial real estate to a fund within the Community Foundation.

Retirement Accounts
Naming the Community Foundation as the beneficiary of your IRA or 401K can provide tremendous tax benefits.

Charitable Trusts
A charitable remainder trust or charitable lead trust can allow you to make a substantial gift to charity while still providing for your personal financial needs.

The advantages of donating to the North White Education Fund within the White County Community Foundation are many, as are the ways in which you can donate. Cash donations are tax-deductible, and donations of other types can offer significant tax benefits.
