    3. Classroom Grants: Teachers often have to pay for class materials out-of-pocket. Our Classroom grants seek to solve that problem by awarding grants up to $1,000 for materials to better the classroom environment, and in turn, enhance a student's ability to learn. Funding may also be used to support COVID-19 relief efforts such as technology support, cleaning and sanitation supplies, as well as mental health needs for students and educators. Nonprofits who provide those services and are partnering with local school systems who meet the grant criteria may also apply for grants. Learn more at:
