- Federal grants from various agencies are listed at www.grants.gov.
- State and local grant opportunities can often be identified by state legislative offices.
- Micro-funding through school- and classroom-specific grants can yield substantial results. Often donors are willing to fund projects whose impact they can directly observe. Such organizations as Donors Choose, Class Wish, and Adopt-a-Classroom facilitate individual donations.
- Contact local businesses to see what programs they have available to support schools.
Don't be scared to apply for a grant - you may just get it!
Good luck and happy hunting.
