For the 2022-23 school year, six mini grants were awarded to teachers in the district for projects in the sciences, special education, consumer sciences, and life skills.
The Knoxville Community Fund was established in 2015 by local residents and built with gifts from community members, businesses, service organizations, and other sources. The Community Fund is an endowed fund of Galesburg Community Foundation, which is guided by a local advisory board that is empowered to award grants that positively impact the Knoxville community.
The Knoxville Community Fund has been granting awards to the community for eight years. Learn more about the Knoxville Community Fund.
