The Vestal School Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organization founded in 1994 by Vestal residents. Through our annual grants program, we provide funds for innovative and challenging programs, and curriculum enrichment in all seven Vestal schools. The Foundation has awarded more than 421 grants totaling about $432,000 over the past twenty-four years. Vestal teachers, staff, students, residents, businesses and organizations are eligible to submit grant proposals for projects designed to benefit students in the Vestal Central School District.
Eligible parties are encouraged to apply for funds during the annual call for proposals. Applications are distributed to principals' offices in December of each year.

Our grants aid Vestal students, from kindergartners to high schoolers, in classrooms, playgrounds, theaters, gyms, ball fields and more. We've given 421 grants worth $432,000 in 24 years!
Our grant program is open to all community members. Applications are distributed to Vestal schools in January. A panel of our board members reviews the applications and makes a recommendation to the entire board for approval.
