Grant Opportunities

Grant opportunities that will benefit K-12 schools, educators, and students are posted on the pages listed below.  

When you find an opportunity that appears to match your project goals, be sure to follow the links to the funder's site for more information.

Remember, it is critical that your project matches the funder's guidelines. You will waste both your time and the grant-maker's if you submit a proposal that does not match the grantor's funding initiatives.
The SchoolGrants focus is primarily schools within the United States. There are, however, often opportunities available that extend to our Canadian neighbors. Most of such opportunities are found on the Nationwide Opportunities pages.

If you know of opportunities that are not listed on the SchoolGrants site, we would appreciate you letting me know about them!  It is the SchoolGrants goal to provide as many opportunities as possible to benefit our Nation's children and their schools.  This is only possible with your help and assistance.

Federal Opportunities

These grant opportunities are generally large and typically encompass an entire school district. Many of these opportunities are offered by the Department of Education; opportunities through other federal agencies are listed here as well.

Return to Top
My time is very limited due to preparing for and conducting workshops and preparing grant proposals.   Grant opportunities listed on this page were accurate at the time they were researched and posted.  However, the economic downturn has caused many grantors to re-evaluate their funding priorities.  Links are provided to their sites - be sure to research the accuracy of the annotations below before expending much energy on proposal  preparation!

The very best way to stay on top of federal - as well as corporate and foundation - grant opportunities for your school is to subscribe to the electronic SchoolGrants Biweekly Newsletter.    If  you're interested in PK-12 grant opportunities, at only $45 a year, you won't find a better value anywhere.  Every annotated opportunity is researched prior to appearing in the newsletter.

Some expired opportunities remain listed on the SchoolGrants site for planning purposes.
