Teacher Grants

The Ritonya Buscher Poehling teacher grant fund is proud to be a small part of the education system providing teachers an opportunity to pursue their ideas to better the teaching profession. The grant program is geared towards education development & innovation. These grants will be available for any teacher and/or school in the Metropolitan Omaha Area.

Our Foundation will award ten $1,000 grants to teachers in the Metropolitan Omaha area for classroom projects this school year. As we enter our 39th year of providing teacher grants, we have funded hundreds of grants for the total amount over $600,000.00! We urge you to take advantage of this opportunity to add to your students' curriculum for a project that will provide fun and a great learning experience.

The teacher grants are to be an expanding source of funds for small, but important, teacher-based projects that are often neglected by the traditional foundations and corporations. The grants are designed to encourage innovation, development, and improvements in the education of our Omaha area children.

The grant program is available for any teacher and school in the Metropolitan Omaha area and surrounding communities (ie - Bellevue, Council Bluffs)
