Allocations Committees & Criteria

There are multiple allocation panels that decide how to allocate the Foundation funds each year. All are made up of parents, teachers, administrators, and students:

  • The Allocations Committee meets each fall and spring to review grant applications for all departments at Redwood as well as campus improvements and Wellness. Redwood staff, parents, students and and campus organizations are all eligible to fill out grant applications. Grant applicants present to the committee who review each application on its own individual merit and then vote on whether to partially or completely fund each grant. The Allocations Committee volunteers serve for two years.
  • Benchwarmers (The Athletic Allocations Committee) reviews athletic grant requests and awards grants that impact every aspect of every sport at Redwood from uniforms and equipment to new score boards!
  • The Scholarship Committee reviews and evaluates scholarship applications for post-secondary school grants awarding Seniors who demonstrate remarkable character and determination as well as significant academic achievement
