Education Grant Request Instructions
The Warrick Public Education Foundation (WPEF) operates as a philanthropic organization to enhance 
education by supporting imaginative programs and projects. It is a non-profit, broadly based partnership in 
education established to encourage, promote and assist educational excellence in the Warrick County 
School Corporation.  Unfortunately every grant submitted cannot be awarded.  The Board does consider 
each grant and its individual merit based on the time it is submitted and in accordance with all other grants
submitted in the same time period.  A grant honored in one time period may not be honored in another, based 
on the merit of all grants submitted during that time period.
