The Alliance developed Reaching Out Grants (“Grants”) to fund new or continuing programs that further our mission: to mobilize community resources to provide opportunities and services that foster educational success for all Greenwich public school students.

The grants cycle, begins with the application process during winter-spring 2016 for grant programs that will run during the 2016-2017 school year.

Grant Recipients. The Alliance will make grants to not-for-profit organizations. This includes local youth service organizations, libraries, after-school organizations, public schools, or PTAs. We will not make grants directly to individuals.* Through Reaching Out Grants the Alliance will support, but not directly operate, programs. The grant programs will be run by the grant recipient organizations

The Greenwich Alliance for Education, as a community foundation, raises funds for its operations from the local corporate and citizen donors of Greenwich, CT. The Alliance, in turn, will make grants to public charities that are 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations and that work in the Greenwich community.
