Five Star Education Foundation Student Success Incubator Funds


These donor-supported funds are designed to partner on initiatives that expose students to career opportunities through experiences, hands-on learning, innovative teaching and other authentic learning pathways.  The goal of the Foundation is to fund projects that will have growth potential, either within the school, with the student, or in the community.  We want to provide applicants the opportunity to 'test, prove and scale' their initiatives and ideas with these seed funds.

Grant writing class


As part of a new initiative, the Five Star Education Foundation is now offering grant research, writing and follow up assistance to teachers and district employees. Launching as part of the Five Star Forward education event with the district on September 5th, Shannon Hancock (Five Star Foundation) and Molly Gibney (Mountain View Elementary) will be conducting a workshop to teach best practices in grant writing, funding sources and more! Participants will also learn how to apply for the Student Success Incubator Funds (formally Five Star Funds) that will be disbursed in September thanks to the generosity of our donors and help from our community. Reach out to the Foundation if you want information on how we can assist you with your grant process! The class will be held in the Snowmass Conference room at the ESC building on September 5th from 4-6pm.
