Seretean Grants

In addition to presenting art programs in our schools, the Jonas Foundation also administers a Seretean Grant in memory of a founding board member, Bud Seretean.  In 2011, his family established this competitive grant which awards a $2,500 grant to one elementary school in each of our three school systems every year.  Schools who want to apply for the grant are asked to select a project that will benefit their school and that incorporates art and strong curriculum skills.

Grant applications need to be submitted by Friday, October 19, 2018 and the winning application from each school system is announced in November so that supplies can be ordered.  The winners of the grant must complete their projects between January and March.  The grant winners are expected to contribute $500 to the grant amount.

The Seretean Foundation Grants History lists all the schools that have won a Seretean Grant.  Over the past eight years, the Seretean Grants have distributed $57,500 to our area schools.
