Kids in Need Foundation Invites Applications for 2013 Teacher Grants Program
The Kids In Need Foundation, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free school supplies to economically disadvantaged school children and underfunded teachers, is accepting applications from K-12 teachers for grants to support classroom projects.
Grants of up to $500 will be awarded to educators for projects that strengthen creativity, critical thinking skills, and/or core knowledge by engaging students in the learning process. Grant awards are based on the creativity of the projects being proposed. Typically, 300 to 600 grants are awarded each year.
Grants will be awarded by independent sponsors including ArtSkills, Office Depot, Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores, the Fred Meyer Fund, and VIA Credit Union. Some of these sponsors restrict donations by geographic region and grade level. Teachers may only apply to one sponsor per project.
All certified K-12 teachers in the United States are eligible.
See the Kids in Need Foundation Web site for complete program information and application guidelines.
