It’s not too late to apply for OSDEF grants for the 2016-17 school year!

OSDEF logoThe Olympia School District Education Foundation (OSDEF) is accepting applications for grants that will be available in the 2016-17 school year. More than $50,000 in grants were awarded this year with a record number of applications, so don’t delay in sending in your application!

Grant categories, guidelines and applications are available online on the OSDEF website.

While there are no specific deadlines for grant applications, if grant funds are needed for the beginning of the school year, applications must be received in the OSDEF office by August 1.  Applications received after that time will be processed for the month following receipt of the application.

All applications received by August 1 will be processed by September 1, and applicants will be notified of the results before the first day of school. Note that all applications submitted will be acknowledged within one week of their being received in the OSDEF office. If you have not heard from us within that time, please contact Bev Sperry in the OSDEF office by email at or by phone at (360)753-8853.  The office is open all year, including summer months.

Feel free to contact the OSDEF office if you have questions or concerns about applying for a grant.
