Since 2014, DEY has offered mini-grants between $200 and $500 to support local advocacy efforts. Through the years, our mini grants have: helped build an outdoor classroom in Arizona, funded a community meeting promoting play as impacting future academic success in Minnesota, supported teacher professional development in Kenya, and provided hands-on math materials in Guatemala plus many others.
Until now, our mini grants have been approved on a rolling basis. However, since we are now receiving many more applications, we have changed our policy to ensure that all applicants have a chance to be considered. Beginning this month, applications will be reviewed four times a year. Our new deadlines are:
- September 1
- December 1
- March 1
- June 1
