As educators, we know that there is no shortage of things we could do for students if we had more money! If you’re willing to invest a little time, you could find excellent grants from corporations, foundations, the state, and federal government at grantsalert.com.
Grants Alert is a great resource for finding grants in one location. You can search by state, type of grant, deadline, or date added. In just a quick peek today, I found:
- $2,000-$50,000 for educational ideas from a Chester County organization, sponsored by the 1675 Foundation.
- a Target grant that will give up to $700 for field trips.
- a $1,000 grant from Northop Gumman Foundation to fund a middle school Fab Lab.
- a $2,500 grant (plus $1K in Crayola products) from Crayola for a creative elementary school.
Don’t forget that you can request funds for your project ideas from Donors Choose! And you never know what can happen – last month Stephen Colbert funded all of the grant requests made by South Carolina public school teachers to the tune of $800,000!
