Great schools have great teachers. Great teachers have great ideas. By submitting successful grant applications, area teachers can apply funds to individual projects, ensuring needs are met for all students.

Stars shine brightly in Ascension Parish schools. Our Ascension Idol event raises much needed funds for our grants program by showcasing the best in area teen vocal talent during a live public performance.

Through our grants, area teachers can provide the best in quality classroom learning. The Ascension Fund grants supply teachers with resources specific to their needs.

When we receive money through sponsorships and individual donations, we make sure it is put to the best use. Our hopes are that all Ascension Parish students have the most successful futures possible. We make this happen with your help.
