THE CITY SCHOOLS FOUNDATION
2552 South Church Street
Murfreesboro, TN 37127
The organization benefits Murfreesboro City Schools’ 7,600 plus pre-K through 6th grade students and serves as a venue for other foundations and corporations to make significant contributions that can impact the school system as a whole. The intent is to bring local resources to bear on local needs. The group was chartered in 2005.
The Foundation’s goals are to boost the school system’s financial support in the areas of science and math, academic competition and excellence among students, and to address financial parity in all schools.
2014 Teacher Grants:
The City Schools Foundation emphasizes improvements in the areas of math and science. However, grant applications with a focus on other areas of learning (reading, ESL, humanities, art, etc.) will be considered for the 2014-15 school year. The grant review process is undertaken by volunteers and Foundation trustees who may have involvement with Murfreesboro City Schools, its teachers, schools or students. For this reason, all grant applications must be completely anonymous.
In addition, all equipment, books or other materials purchased with grant proceeds will remain the property of the Murfreesboro City Schools and must be left with the school if the initial grant recipient ceases employment.
All grant applications must be received by Lisa Trail in the Central Office by 4:00 pm on Wednesday, September 3, 2014.
