ASF Grant Program
A 2021 grant provided collaboration stations at Northview Middle School. The stations have allowed students to share their work from a laptop or Chromebook in a small group setting using the smart TV, which has much clearer and brighter resolution. It has also allowed students to showcase their leadership skills while working in small groups.

Annually, the Ankeny School Foundation provides grants toward the mission of motivating and inspiring high quality education. Teachers and staff have the opportunity to apply for funding of equipment and projects which reach beyond the regular School District budget. Since 2000, the Foundation is proud to have awarded over $500,000 to creative and innovative projects and activities.


The 2023 grant application was open from September 1-19, 2023.
