Grant Overview

OEF donates both Education Grants directly to OUSD Teachers to support in-class activities, Major Grants to any employee of OUSD or a student(s) sponsored by a teacher that address a major need at a school site, and Student Grants to support students in their academic endeavors.

For the 2018 - 19 school year, OEF is proud to have awarded over $46,000 in both Major and Education grants to fund innovative and impactful programs and resources in our public schools.  Click here to read about our 2018 - 19 Teacher grantees!
