How could $5,000 to $10,000 improve, advance and enrich student learning? Safeway and Albertsons know that teachers in our community can think of many answers to this question, and that’s why the Safeway Foundation and the Albertsons Companies Foundation is proud to have created the Innovation in Education Grant. K-12 grade Teachers from across Washington State and Alaska applied for the grant by submitting ideas for creative projects in literacy, math, reading, science, health, engineering and social studies. 50 teachers were awarded grants equaling $250, 000.
We believe that every student should have access to education that prepares them to succeed in school and life. We believe that investing in education creates a foundation for a better future for all of us. We support programs that encourage a child’s success in a safe environment and that foster learning in all subjects, including after-school activities as well as other interventions.
Our funding is specifically for K-12 education in schools and in out-of-school organizations that increase test scores, classroom performance and/or attendance.
