General Guidelines

Thank you for your interest in The Litchfield Education Foundation’s Grant process. Please use the following guidelines when writing your grant proposal:

LEF funds projects that:

  • Serve children in the Litchfield community

  • Have an educational and enrichment purpose

  • Will inspire students

  • Are innovative and creative

LEF generally does not fund:

  • Projects or items that should be typically funded through regular school or organization budgets such as professional development, salary, student field trips, or individual student costs.

If awarded the Litchfield Education Foundation must be listed as the funder on any material that promotes the project.   A LEF board member may periodically visit during the project.  A grant agreement must be signed and dated upon receiving the grant award.   An end of project reporting form will be required within 30 days of the project ending.
