YCSF Grant Information

The Yancey County Schools Foundation is a not for profit organization dedicated to the improvement of Yancey County Schools. 

The Board presently consists of 16 volunteer directors and four ex-officio directors. It is the express desire of the Foundation Board to provide educational project funds to teachers and school staff that might not otherwise be available. Grants are awarded for creativity and innovation for academic programs and/or learning techniques.

Proposals are reviewed by the Foundation Board. The Board considers the following criteria when evaluating proposals:

  • Long- lasting value of the project
  • Number of students to benefit from proposal
  • Documentation of academic need
  • Probability of success
  • Evidence of unavailability of similar programs and/or funding
  • Appropriateness of learning plan
  • Desired goals of proposal
