During a time when it seems the pandemic has found a way to slow down many organizations throughout the world – the Foundation for Saline Area Schools (FSAS) has persevered. This group of dedicated volunteers have continued to provide funding for enrichment activities, educational initiatives, and district-wide strategic goals.
We are overwhelmed with the support we have received during a difficult time for the district and community.
“Thanks to the generosity and continued support of our donors and sponsors, FSAS has been able to award thousands of dollars in grants so far this year to Saline Area Schools that will directly impact our students. Even through this pandemic and difficult times, FSAS donors have remained steadfast and faithful to our mission and we are grateful.”Annherst Kreitz
As we approach the halfway point of this unprecedented 2021-2022 school year, FSAS has already approved over $98,000 worth of grants for Saline Area Schools. Carolyn McFarlane, FSAS Trustee, cannot wait to see the grants in action. “The Foundation is so happy to be able to support our students & staff. We are excited to see the grants we’ve awarded take shape, and we are so thankful to our donors who make this possible. In these times, it is more important than ever for our students, staff and community to come together to not only uphold the excellent education that SAS provides, but also support the social and emotional needs that are so crucial to everybody’s well being. We look forward to more innovative, creative ideas in the future!”
Below are just a few of the recently approved grants:
Implementation of these grants is underway and will begin gaining momentum in early spring. Saline supporters can expect to see grant spotlights to better understand the depth of these ideas and the impact they will ultimately have on student achievement.
FSAS is seeking one more round of grant applications for this school year – with a focus on student and teacher submissions. Information on a spring cycle will be coming soon, stay tuned! For more information on the application process, follow this link: https://supportfsas.org/grants/application/
