Trumbull ACE Foundation

We are pleased to announce that the Foundation is offering competitive academic  and civic service teams/groups of Trumbull Schools the opportunity to apply for grants.


Grant Criteria:

  • Degree to which the team/group is well-organized under faculty supervision with clear objectives and goals that include group development and individual intellectual growth and skill enhancement.
  • Extent of challenge in the team's/group's objectives, e.g., involvement in competitions with similar teams/groups from other schools.
  • Requested funding's proportion to the team's/group's full academic year budget and the educational benefit of the requested expenditure.
  • Degree to which team/group members (and their families) have personally participated (or promised to participate) in the Foundation's fundraising activities. Extent to which the team/group has exhausted other funding sources.


Funding: The Foundation reserves the right to fund team/group requests in full, in part, or not at all. The Foundation's intent is clear; however, to grant requests to the fullest extent possible. Teams/groups will be required to return funds to the Foundation if the activity originally funded is cancelled or otherwise not pursued. Payment will be made upon approval of the grant and receipt of associated receipts/invoices.

Grant Requests: The Foundation may revise these application guidelines from time to time.

All applicants are encouraged to submit grant requests as early in the school year as possible. In addition, ad hoc grant requests are welcome as unexpected circumstances dictate and opportunities arise. However, advisors are asked to provide a reasonable period of time for Foundation consideration and response before funding is required.
