How It Works
How It Works
Teachers apply online by completing the application form here. There are new guidelines: Teachers may submit only one application per grant cycle. Grant requests should not exceed $1,000, and grants for $1,000 are very rare.
The grant cycle is August 1 through April 30. Requests must be received by the last day of the month to be considered for the upcoming month’s grants. For example if a request is received on November 1, it is considered during the December grant meeting. Grant requests are reviewed, and notification emails are sent monthly during the grant cycle.
Teacher’s Fund gives grants to teachers for materials such as books, art supplies, dictionaries, classroom rugs, reading materials for science and math, storage and organization tools, and electronics to name a few examples. Please note we do not fund field trips, snacks, printers, ink or toner.
Once teacher’s receive notification, only then may they purchase the item(s) requested and submit receipt(s) for reimbursement. Hard copy or electronic receipts along with the notification letter must be submitted within 45 days to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or mail the information to:Teacher’s Fund c/o Village Properties attn: Leanne Wood 1250 Coast Village Road Santa Barbara, CA 93108
RECEIPTS MUST BE RECEIVED WITHIN 45 DAYS OF THE DATE OF NOTIFICATION OR THE GRANT IS CANCELLED.
A check will be mailed to the teacher within 14 business days.
