Lafayette Breakfast Optimist Club Teacher Grants

Applications for 2018 have closed. Applications for 2019 will open August/September.

Congratulations to our 2018 teachers. You can see the list of winners at the "2018" link below.

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:

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