46 places to find funds for school projects

By Jesse Graytock
The NEA Foundation Grants Manager

Finding funding to develop top-notch instruction can be challenging. School resources are stretched thin, money is scarce, and often educators simply don’t have the time necessary to scour the internet for grants to help bring their great ideas to life in their classrooms.


But you’re not alone. The NEA Foundation is here to help.


We’ve compiled a simple, one-stop resource, where teachers and education support professionals can find education grants.


Whether you’re looking to equip your classroom with tablet technology, build an outdoor classroom, take a class, or attend a conference, we want you to have options. That’s why we’ve pulled together 46 grant opportunities on our Other Grant Resources page.


We hope that this resource helps in your grant hunt and that you share it with colleagues who may be searching for funding as well.


Don’t forget about the NEA Foundation’s February 1 deadline for our Student Achievement and Learning & Leadership Grants. We’d love for you to apply.


Good luck! And if you know of any resources that we may have missed, feel free to include them in the comment section.

Some of these grants have long since expired and are from last year. Of the four that I opened to look further, three of them expired prior to this 2013-14 school year even starting.
