From our Curriculum Associates Partners:
Grant Opportunity from The Waldron Charitable Fund
The Waldron Charitable Fund is offering $1 million in grant funding to support community organizations serving the critical needs of the nation’s underserved children and the 30 million students who receive free and reduced-price meals. As more and more schools nationwide close in response to concerns about the spread of the COVID-19 virus, this initiative will directly fund those who serve critical health needs (both physical and mental), provide nutritional assistance, and support special education for underserved school children.
Complete information is available here. The submission deadline is Friday, March 20, 2020 at 5 pm ET.
To apply, please email a document no longer than two pages in PDF form to WaldronFund@gmail.com that addresses the following:
- Briefly describe the 501(c)(3) organization.
- What problem are you working to solve?
- How many underserved children will be positively impacted by your efforts?
- How will you distribute your solution while keeping children safe during the COVID-19 crisis?
- How quickly can your service be provided?
Please include a copy of the organization’s most recent Form 990 and annual report, if one exists. A duplicate copy should be mailed to the attention of Rob Waldron at Curriculum Associates, 153 Rangeway Road, North Billerica, MA 01862.
Applicants must represent 501(c)(3) organizations, and faith-based organizations are eligible to apply. Because of government procurement rules for K–12 curriculum companies, organizations directly affiliated with a school—such as a parent–teacher organization (PTO) or a local school foundation—are ineligible.
