Foundation and Corporate Grants

Find Private Funding to Support Education Initiatives 

Foundation and corporate grants can infuse new revenue sources into your school or district. Education grants usually fund specific program areas such as technology, literacy, summer programs, enhancing teacher practices, or diversity and equity. Many large corporations have established foundations to lead the company's philanthropic giving, and these grants may be focused on the geographic area where the company has employees or customers. Communities may also have local education or school foundations to support public education initiatives in their district.

For all grants, carefully review the funding priorities and eligibility criteria to determine who can apply for funding.
