As the Mt. Vernon Education Foundation reaches out within the community, the corporate field has opportunities to help the schools. This page is dedicated to Mt. Vernon Schools’ staff, to provide additional possible funding resources for staff to pursue.
Hancock County Community Foundation (HCCF)
The Hancock County Community Foundation has several grant opportunities available, and some opportunities change each year. Please click here to link to their webpage grants section.
Duke Energy has a Foundation that offers grants, primarily in the focus of science, math and technology (stem-science, not ipads or flip-cameras). This grant opportunity would only be applicable for the Mt. Comfort Elementary, since it is the only Mt. Vernon School that uses Duke Energy as a vendor. However, Duke Energy does have some great teaching resources available for class projects on their website; click here for the information. The grant opportunity for Mt. Comfort Elementary is available by clicking here
