The Healthy Classrooms Foundation is excited to announce our 11th annual invitation for project grant applications to enhance the health of classrooms throughout the state of Wisconsin! We look forward to partnering with educators and school healthcare providers across the state as our allies in improving the emotional, mental, and physical health of Wisconsin's students. 

Established in 2008, the Healthy Classrooms Foundation (HCF) strives to make a positive difference in the health of the next generation by promoting and fostering long-lasting projects that increase public health practices in the classrooms. We are committed to community efforts to achieve this goal in the primary and secondary school systems.

It is with these beliefs at heart and in mind that we, HCF, wish to directly support changes at the classroom and school level that focus on issues such as combating childhood obesity, teaching mindfulness, and promoting environmental responsibility for the future.

We seek to fund innovative projects that aim to integrate public health into the classrooms of elementary, middle, and high schools. We encourage you to be creative and think of sustainability when designing your projects.
