Satch Grants are awarded quarterly to non profits working on specific projects. The next deadline to apply for 2nd Q Satch Grant is June 30. First Quarter Satch Grants for 2016 were awarded to three local organizations focused on helping the youth of our community. 

Project ReVibe  was awarded $500. Project ReVibe works to empower youth with special needs through sustainability and arts. The ReVibe project allows participants to channel their efforts into learning new skills in woodworking, construction and entrepreneurship. Recycling, creating, collaboration and community involvement will hopefully take a small project on to larger things.

The Education Foundation of Alachua County has supported Alachua County Public schools since 1986. The Education Foundation funds the Find it and Fund it and Catalyst for Change programs. These initiatives help educators purchase items which the foundation believes empowers teachers and principals to choose programs and materials for their school and classrooms not covered by other funding sources. This organization was awarded $1000 Satch Grant.
