Grant Opportunities - 
Alaska and Hawaii

Opportunities found on this page are available to schools in Alaska and Hawaii. 

It is very important to read the funder's guidelines carefully before submitting an application!  Make sure that your project and the grantor's initiatives go hand-in-hand with one another!

If you know of other opportunities, please share them with us and your colleagues.

Samuel N. and Mary Castle Foundation    (Hawaii only)
The Foundation's interests focus primarily on the support of early education and care, private education, Protestant churches and arts and cultural organizations with ties to the Castle family. Preference is also given to those organizations in which the current Trustees are involved. The first and highest priority of the Foundation is grantmaking to improve the health, education and welfare of children from pre-natal care to children age 5. This includes assistance to specific pre-schools, kindergartens, and non-profit care agencies as well as system-wide improvements and parenting education. A  second priority is to assist independent schools serving a K-12 student population with limited support for system-wide change in the tax-supported public school sector.  For the year 2000, the Foundation is  seeking proposals which will: 1) improve the quality of services to families with young children, ages birth through five, including systematic development and enhancement of the early childhood work force and provisions of sufficient, safe and appropriate materials and equipment in settings which care for children; 2) support, engage and/or educate parents in how best to nurture their children; 3) expand the availability of services targeting young children and their families, particularly in communities of the state which have traditionally been underserved; 4) increase the amount of crucial data on the current state of Hawaii's children and provide for its dissemination; 5) technical assistance projects which enhance the capacity of the early childhood sector; and/or 6) improve the educational infrastructure through small equipment purchases and renovation of facilities. Deadline dates in 2000 for submission of proposals in response to this request are: February 1 for consideration at the April meeting; June 1 for consideration at the August meeting; and October 1 for consideration at the December meeting.

Corning Incorporated Foundation
The Corning Incorporated Foundation develops and administers projects in support of  educational, cultural, community and selected national organizations. Corning's areas of involvement in education have included community service programs for students, curriculum enrichment, student scholarships, facility improvement, and instructional technology projects for the classroom. Grants are primarily made toward initiatives which improve the quality of life in and near locations where Corning Incorporated is an active corporate citizen. Each year, the Foundation makes approximately 225 grants totaling about $2,250,000.

Corning has plants or offices in Alaska, California, Colorado, Florida, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Washington, D.C.

Charlotte Martin Foundation
The Charlotte Martin Foundation focuses on two main program areas:  Youth through athletics, culture and education and Wildlife and Habitat.  In the area of athletics, the Foundation supports: Programs, facilities and equipment for areas and sports where youth populations are underserved; After school and off-hours sports programs making better use of existing facilities; and Development of more and better coaches. Youth cultural programs that are supported are: Cultural programs in schools and communities, particularly those areas that are underserved by other cultural and funding resources; Active participation of young people in music, art, dance, literature; Ticket sponsorship to expand youth access to performances; Assisting educators to acquire skills in teaching arts and culture; Projects that celebrate the heritage and cultural diversity of a community; and Art and culture, used in conjunction with mentoring, as a medium to help at-risk youth. The Foundation also supports: School-based projects to improve student achievement of state learning standards; Enhancing basic curriculum in the arts, science, language, math, literature; Continued development and enrichment for teachers; and Select capital campaigns and endowments.

The Charlotte Martin Foundation accepts applications, review proposals, and makes funding decisions on an on-going basis, throughout the year. Their fiscal year begins April 1 and ends March 31, so all funds for that cycle must be expended by that date. There is some advantage in having applications submitted between April 1 and the end of September. 

The Foundation funds projects in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Arizona, California, Alaska.
