Lafayette Breakfast Optimist Club Teacher Grants

Applications for 2019 are closed and awardees will be notified in the near future.

Come back Fall 2020 to apply for the next year of grants.
Until then, learn more about our Fat Tuesday program which funds them.

For several years now, one of Lafayette Breakfast Optimist Club's missions has been to support teachers who want to make a difference educating their students in new or unique ways. In support of this mission, we provide several thousand dollars in Teacher Grants to teachers at schools in the local area.


You can see examples of some past funded projects below:



Chris Steindorff - Southeastern Middle School (2016)



All funding for Teacher Grants comes from our yearly fundraising event Fat Tuesday and the support of the Lafayette community.
