Campaign for Continuing Excellence Classroom Grants

The Campaign for Continuing Excellence is the initial fund established by the foundation which provides funds for annual/semi-annual cash grants to Radford City Schools and serves as the general fund for foundation expenses (i.e., annual Commonwealth of Virginia SCC registration fee, fund raising expenses including postage and printing, preparation of annual Return of Organization Exempt from Income Tax, etc.). The policy of the Foundation is to award annually 100% of income earned, less minimal operating expenses, as cash grants to the local schools. Annually, teachers are encouraged to apply for grants which are awarded by the Foundation’s Cash Grants Review Committee and approved by the Board.
