The Moline Public Schools Foundation was established to improve and strengthen school programs offered by the Moline School District. The MPSF awards grants that contribute directly to education on annual basis that have averaged between $22,000 to $28,000 total. The MPSF focuses on providing teachers in the Moline School District with funding that will contribute directly to enhancing a student's skills in reading, math, sciences, social studies etc. in the classroom. Teachers at all Moline schools are encouraged to apply using the provided grant application that is made available each year in January. 

The timeline of the annual grant cycle is as follows:

  • Grant application is made available in January.
  • The application deadline requirement is set for Mid-March of the same year.
  • The allocations committee is sent copies of each complete application received by the deadline.
  • The allocation committee meets in April to review the applications and recommend grants to the board for that year's available funds.
  • The Moline Public Schools Foundation board votes on the final grant approval at the regularly scheduled May board meeting.
  • Teachers are notified prior to the end of the school year.
  • Grants are announced at the State of the Schools event.  Recipients are required to attend.
