Grant Finder

Welcome to our Grant Finder! Besides the grants listed below, there may be others available for your school. We cover how to search for grants in our Grant Writing 101 Webinar. Sometimes the best grants to apply for are those within your school’s education foundation/local network. Always reach out to your school’s or district’s grant writer and administrators to learn about more grants available to your school.

Please note: The purpose of this grant finder is to help teachers and grant writers connect with possible grants. It is your responsibility to go to the grant organization’s website to receive the most up-to-date information and confirm that the budget, deadline, and eligibility still match your application/proposal. The grants listed below are funded by non-affiliated organizations. Please contact the funder directly for specific questions and eligibility requirements. Math & Movement does not provide these grants directly.
