ELIGIBILITY
Any faculty member, department, club or sports team at Mission Vista High School are eligible to apply for a grant. Grant requests submitted by parents/students or community members not listed above may be considered on a case to case basis.

CRITERIA

Foundation grants are meant to supplement and enhance the educational experience of the students of Mission Vista High school. Grants are determined and awarded per individual circumstances.

Some determining factors of a grant’s approval are as follows:

  • The amount of grant requests received and the determined budget in said cycle
  • The grant amount requested is reasonably weighted to the amount of students that will be impacted
  • The grant request is in compliance with Vista Unified School District and Mission Vista High School guidelines.

Examples of a fundable grant request: equipment, supplies, start-up uniforms, materials.

Example of a non-fundable grant request: Tournament or Registration Fees​

The Board of Directors will vote on all recommended requests at their next regularly scheduled monthly board meeting. When a grant is awarded, a grant approval letter and general terms and conditions will be emailed to the grant recipient “requestor’s”. Grants not awarded will be notified via email.

Completed grant applications can be submitted online or to the Timberwolves Foundation mailbox – ATTN: Grant Administrator, located in the MVHS office or emailed to sarah@timberwolvesfoundation.com.  ​
