Department Overview

  • The Development and Grants department assists schools, teachers and ASD departments with researching and applying for competitive grants and funding opportunities. Financial contributions from community members to the Anchorage School District help support programs that directly assist our students. These programs aim to help students succeed in school despite barriers that make getting to school and staying in school a challenge. Alternative school programs and student and family assistance programs offer help with school supplies and other basic needs that might not be met outside of school. These programs help create a more equitable educational environment to help us achieve our mission of educating all students for success in life.


    If you are interested in making a contribution to ASD, please fill out our Gift to ASD Form and contact the Development and Grants department. You may direct your gift to a specific school, ASD department, or to one of our programs. Thank you for your support of ASD students.
