Grants for Schools: Family Learning & Exemplary Health

We wanted to pass on a few good ideas for grants for schools. They may not start with the school cafeteria, but you may be able to pass them onto colleagues…

Support for Family Learning Programs
National Center for  Family Literacy: Toyota Family Learning
Toyota Family Learning, a new initiative of the National Center  for Family Literacy (NCFL), is a modern-day movement for all families to learn  together. One key element of Toyota Family Learning is to provide grants to  fund family mentor programs and service learning programs targeting vulnerable  families. In the current funding round, NCFL will award five organizations a  three-year grant, as well as a wide range of NCFL training and communications  support, to implement services that encourage families to learn together. The  focus is on applications that will adapt existing family engagement in  education programs to include the implementation of family mentoring and  service learning components. Each winning applicant will receive a $175,000 grant divided over  three years. The application deadline is June 24, 2013. Visit the NCFL website to download the Request for  Proposals.

Exemplary Health Services Programs  Recognized
Premier  Cares Award
The Premier Cares Award was established to recognize exemplary programs  nationwide that have made health services more accessible to a specific  medically underserved population, particularly as demonstrated in superior  health outcomes. The award spotlights innovative programs that support people  excluded from or underserved by the mainstream health delivery system,  including farm workers, homeless children, pregnant teens, low-income mothers  and infants, and individuals who don't have the strength or means to reach a  clinic or hospital. The winning program must be able to show measurable  benefits/outcomes covering a full two-year span and must be capable of being  replicated. The award winner receives $100,000 and the other five finalists  receive $24,000 each. The entry deadline is July 31, 2013. Visit the Premier  website to review the award criteria and download the entry form.

Grants Fund Skateboard Parks
Tony  Hawk Foundation
The Tony Hawk Foundation is dedicated to funding the construction of new,  quality skateboard parks located in low-income communities throughout  the United States. The Foundation primarily considers projects that can  demonstrate a strong grassroots commitment, particularly in the form of  planning and fundraising by local skateboarders and other community groups.  Priority is given to projects that are designed and built by qualified and  experienced skateboard park contractors and include local skaters in the design  process. Requests are reviewed two times per year; the upcoming application  deadline is July 1, 2013. Visit the Foundation’s website to review the grant  criteria and submit an online application.
