School Grants Bring Needed Materials and Supplies

School Grants Banner
I first became aware of grant writing as a teacher more than 25 years ago. My first school grant was for $300 for additional teaching supplies. It was a short grant appropriately titled "A Mini-Grant", and was funded by my district.
Some 25 years later, I have written Federal grants, State grants and foundation grants, most of which were funded.
During an 8 year period as Director of Professional Development for San Diego County Office of Education, I wrote approximately 40 grants ranging from $30,000 to nearly $1,000,000. I am pleased to say that 38 out of 40 were funded. 
We've put together some resources for you to assist you in your grant writing efforts which will be presented in this newsletter.
