Grants Available for Family Engagement/Books

(Yes, I know I'm supposed to be gone but I saw this in my mail and wanted to pass it along to any interested groups.)

The W.K. Kellogg Foundation yesterday announced a $5 million investment to identify and expand promising family engagement efforts that support early childhood educational success.

Given your interest in education and family engagement issues, I thought you might be interested in sharing this news with your networks. I’ve included more information and a sample tweet below.

The foundation is seeking initial submissions of intent from organizations and groups striving to build innovative, equitable and effective family-engagement approaches and will invest up to $5 million in 2013-14 with possible funding of up to $500,000 for one to three years. Applications, available on this website which includes more information, are due Sept. 23, 2013.


From First Book Seattle:
If you work with children from low income families or in a Title 1 school then take a look at First Book Seattle who have just opened their grant cycle for 2013. They are a local branch of a national Non-profit who work to get books into the homes of children who need them. Their grants allow teachers, librarians, administrators, or program leaders to purchase brand new books at no cost. It's a simple application process and you have until September 16th. More information is on their website: http://supporters.firstbook.org/site/Clubs?club_id=1300&sid=2790&pg=other
