Public schools are exempt from the $150,000 budget criteria. However, we do not fund existing school curricula (e.g., materials for an art class), long-standing programs (e.g., annual school play), and programs of staffed non-profits based in the school. We prioritize Title 1 schools.
If your school has a green team, we also encourage you to check out our Public School Green Team Mini-Grants. In partnership with Department of Sanitation, we award up to $2,000 of cash and/or material support for green team projects.
