In response to the devastation caused by the 2008 flood, the Cedar Rapids Community Schools Foundation established the School Flood Relief Fund. The fund was designed to address immediate needs of the 1,800 students, 100 staff, and schools affected by the flood. While the immediate and basic needs of many have been met, ongoing challenges persist. In response to these continued needs, the Foundation initiated the Sports, Academic, Fine Arts and Enrichment activities for Kids (SAFE).
SAFE provides financial assistance to at-risk/low income students (as identified by the school district’s free or reduced meal program criteria) who want to participate in school sponsored co-curricular and/or extra-curricular activities (not funded by the District), but otherwise could not due to financial constraints of their family/parents/guardians.
A confidential request process on behalf of students may be done by Cedar Rapids Community School District employees such as teachers, coaches, counselors, facilitators, or principals. Funds can be applied towards but are not limited to:
Sports: equipment and uniform needs, activity fees
Academics: tuition or transportation costs associated with College for Kids, Discover Summer School, Academic Triathlon, and Science Olympiads
Fine Arts: show choir, marching band, etc. participation and/or performance attire
Enrichment: participation fees, equipment needs for school sponsored activities such things as LEGO League, Future City, speech, drama etc…
+ Activity must be a school sponsored co-curricular and/or extra-curricular activities (not funded by the District)
