RHEF Mini Grants
The Red Hook Education Foundation (RHEF) is a volunteer led, community-based, not-for-profit organization. Working with private donors, local businesses, foundations, and corporations, the education foundation can provide funding for equipment, programs, and projects that are not funded by the school district’s budget or membership organizations.
Requests can be submitted by Red Hook Central School District faculty, staff, administrators and students. District parents and community members are encouraged to share ideas for programs with eligible applicants. All applications must be approved and signed by building principal.
Applicants are eligible for grants up to $1,000 under this program. The total amount of resources available for mini-grants may vary from year to year depending upon RHEF funding.
