Awesome Foundation
"The Awesome Foundation is a global community advancing the interest of awesome in the universe, $1,000 at a time," according to the group. This is a collection of local individuals giving gifts of $1,000 per month to "awesome" projects -- and YOU define what awesome means. Former SPPS communications director Su Yeager is one of the trustees; she encourages SPPS teachers to apply using the easy online application.

MRC offers grants for innovative projects and curriculum
The Multicultural Resource Center is offering grants of up to $500 to foster innovative projects and curriculum that promote student engagement and achievement, are culturally responsive and standards-based and can can be replicated by other educators.

The grant is open to licensed and non-licensed staff who work directly with students, either individually or in teams. All grant funds must be spent by June 10, 2016. Funds may be used on materials or experiences that directly impact student engagement and achievement. Applications will be reviewed on the first of each month through May 1.
