The Foundation for Educational Excellence has received a three-year $15,000 grant Friday from First Citizens Bank.

The money will be used for mini-grants for classroom projects in the Beaufort County School District. The grants have been given twice each school year since 2009.

Jan Davis-Vater said the $15,000 grant is the largest the foundation has received since it was founded in 2007.

The Foundation for Educational Excellence is a fund of the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry.
