What's a Mini-Grant?

Effective teachers use creative ideas to enrich students’ learning. For several years the foundation has provided funds with which professional staff could try out and refine new ways to learn. Called “mini-grants,” the projects usually are limited in scope and to $500 in cost, but successful projects can be renewed.

Mini-grants are funded by donors, who may designate their contributions be used for a particular project or kind of project. The amount of annual funding and number of grants depends on the generosity of donors.
