SEED Welcomes Corporate Sponsor D.F. Energy

The Seacoast Educational Endowment of Dover (SEED)  a non-profit organization that promotes academic excellence by providing innovation grants to Dover educators, is pleased to announce D.F. Richard Energy has donated $5,000 to the organization. The funds will be used to grant awards for ground-breaking learning projects to be implemented across the Dover school district.

For more than eighty years, D.F. Richard Energy has been providing the people of seacoast New Hampshire and southern Maine with heating oil and propane to heat their homes and water, and power their appliances. “Like D.F. Richard Energy, SEED believes in excellence and innovation,” said Stuart Khal, President, SEED Board of Directors. “We are honored to help create a legacy of educational distinction in Dover public schools.”

SEED is currently accepting applications for education grants in two categories; mini grants to fund hot ideas budgeted at the $100 to $500 level and a brand new health education category with up to $5,000 in available funding.  The health education category is designed for faculty in health, science, physical education educators, biotechnology and culinary arts programs across the Dover district with a objective of improving health education, and possibly health outcomes, for students in Dover’s schools.

SEED’s overarching goals are to advocate for the value of education in the community and ensure all Dover students are college and career ready upon graduation. Dover public school’s educators and staff are encouraged to submit competitive proposals on or before December 1, 2013. Successful proposals will be based on SEED’s existing grant evaluation criteria and will be reviewed by the grant application committee. More information and the application can be found on the SEED website at www.doverseed.org.
