Congratulations to the
2016 Mini-Grant recipients!

When teachers bring passion to the classroom, magic happens.

Students come together on projects that inspire curiosity, deepen understanding, and change lives. Lack of funding should never get in the way of this kind of learning.

That’s why, every fall, we award mini-grants of up to $500 to K-12 educators in the communities we serve. We love projects that spark something new and want to see proposals for helping kids create and teachers innovate. 

If you’re an educator with an idea for a classroom project, tell us about it. 

Before you apply 

  • The most memorable projects will stick with students for years to come. Tell us how yours will. 
  • We want our funding to have a major impact on your project. If it will cost more than $500, please tell us the source of the remaining funds. 
  • We’ll pay for equipment and supplies, such as calculators or art materials, but only if they’re part of a larger project.
  • Don’t forget to keep your principal in the loop by sharing a copy of your proposal. 

If your project doesn’t qualify for a mini-grant and our budget allows, we might give you a bit of seed money to get started.
