Welcome To The Jenison Public Education Foundation

The Jenison Public Education Foundation is now accepting grant applications for the 2018-19 school year!

Our goal is to fund your creative and innovative ideas to help you educate and prepare students for bright and rewarding futures. We have learned that the best teaching methods come from our greatest assets: OUR EDUCATORS! That is why over the last 20 years we have awarded over $200,000 to enhance teaching and learning at Jenison Public Schools. JPEF believes it is important to assist as many teachers as possible. Therefore, we are accepting applications totaling up to $1,000. Whatever goals and dreams you have for your school or classroom, JPEF would like to help fulfill them. We look forward to receiving your application.
