Hestia considers proposals from a variety of organizations.
The proposals must benefit MIDDLE SCHOOL students within the geographic boundaries of the Santa Fe Public Schools, adding positively to their life experience in the areas of academics, arts, sciences, athletics, health and well-being.
We review GRANTEE applications after May 15th of each year. The 2021/2022 Grant Cycle is now closed. The 2022/2023 cycle will open in March 2021.

While the overall goal is to encourage students to gain successes and stay motivated to remain in school through high school graduation, the more immediate goal is to offer students enriching opportunities. Though funding programs has been Hestia’s emphasis, strategic initiatives will also be considered.
Organizations can apply individually or in collaboration with other groups to provide a more comprehensive program.
**Please note the Hestia Fund follows a guideline of funding our grant partners for no more than three consecutive years. This guideline does not assure consecutive funding during the three-year term as each organization’s performance is evaluated yearly. Then the organization must “sit out” for one year before reapplying for funds. We encourage all grant partners to apply for funding again after the one-year hiatus. For those who are funded by Hestia, this means three years on, one year off.
