Innovation Grants (formerly Mini-Grants)

Insert picture here INNOVATION GRANTS Help Our Classrooms!

The Ames Education Foundation annually awards funds to teachers throughout the Ames Community School District for educational needs in the classroom. Teachers apply for the Innovation Grants which are then reviewed by a committee comprised of Foundation trustees, teachers, and administrators. This has a positive impact on our students.

There are two applications: 
1.The Ames Education Foundation Innovation Grant, and
2. The Ames Education Foundation Finn/Milleman Innovation Grant

We are NOT currently accepting applications for this program as we are in the process of planning. Please check back for updates. 

  • Ames Education Foundation Innovation Grant deadline for FALL, is November 28, each year.
  • Ames Education Foundation Finn/Milleman Grant deadline for Fall, is December 4, each year.


We are NOT currently accepting donations for this program. If you would like to donate to Ames Education Foundation to support programs, please make a general donation.
