Good Idea Grants

What is the Good Idea Grants Program?

The Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation’s showcase for innovation, creativity, and helping all children to reach high levels of achievement is the Good Idea Grants Program. The Good Idea Grants Program is designed to enhance innovation in the classroom and challenge teachers to think creatively and boldly. Mini-grants for public school teachers of up to $3,000 provide the needed financial resources not available through usual government channels.

Grants

The number of grants awarded is dependent on the contributions generated by the annual fundraising banquet. More than $5,000,000 to date has been awarded.

Education

The Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation believes educational excellence begins in the classroom. It is our hope that successful innovative practices will be recognized and repeated throughout the school system to benefit all of our students.
