21 Ways to Obtain Information on Grants and Grant Writing

Money is being cut from school budgets and we are scrambling to provide our students with the necessary tools to get a good education. Things are the same whether you are teaching in New Jersey or Oregon. Most teachers shell out lots of their own personal dollars to purchase things for their classrooms. Now that it is summer break for most of us, I put together a list of resources on where and how to apply for grant money. Competition is tougher than ever for these dollars, so get a head start now:

The Chronicle of Philanthropy- the newspaper of the nonprofit world

Classwish- teachers create their own wish lists for classroom supplies; donors assist in the purchase

Digital Wish- currently 50 grants available

DonorsChoose- submit your request and donors can choose your school and contribute to your project

Donors Forum- tips on fundraising and more; free webinars

Education Funding Watch

GivingGetting- donors are linked with school in need 

Grant Gopher -free and $$ for services

Grant Information:Resources to Get You Started- from Edutopia

Grant Writing Resources -from

The Mr. Holland's Opus Foundation- designated for instrumental music education in schools.

Target Field Trip Grants-  since 2007 they have awarded $9.76 million dollars in grants!

Writing a Grant Proposal- extensive information from Columbia University
