Find It Fund It is an automated online grant application program that allows teachers to post school projects or programs for funding from Hillsborough Education Foundation or the public. Hillsborough County Public School teachers and administrators can submit applications for consideration until March 13, 2020. Project requests must be at least $100 and not exceed $2,000.
Hillsborough Education Foundation has dedicated dollars to help fund innovative classroom and school projects. We encourage those who submit an application to promote their project by garnering support through email, Twitter and Facebook using a designated link for each project.

To apply, you must register using your district email address, then complete your project application(s). Once an application is submitted, it will go through a two-step approval process. The first step is for your principal to approve or deny the project via an automated email. Next, Hillsborough Education Foundation will review. Once your application has made it through the approval process, you will be contacted, and the project will be posted to the public site. Keep in mind that all funded projects must be completed by May 1, 2020 and an online impact report and student thank-you letters will be required. Photos are encouraged.
Your submitted application will be visible to the public so make it interesting and use language that the general public will find compelling. Please note that this is a new application system; as we learn from feedback we will strengthen our processes. Please refer to this instruction page throughout the year for current procedures.
Remember that you must notify the HCPS Grants and Research Operations (GRO) office of your intent to apply for funding by submitting a Grant Application Notification form via IDEAS at least two weeks prior to submitting your grant. Go to District => District Forms => Grant Application Notification. This Grant Application Notification form must be completed for each opportunity that is pursued.
