GrantEd Supports Schooling at Home

When the pandemic hit the world, we at GrantEd had no idea how life would change for any of us, let alone the many dedicated teachers we serve. We wondered if teachers’ need for GrantEd as a resource would diminish; we wondered how we could best support them in this unprecedented time. After two months, we are excited to have received so many grant requests that help teachers stay productive and engaged with their students during distance learning.

We have funded diverse requests that include care packages sent to student homes, 5th grade graduation gifts, home office supplies, innovative online teaching platforms, accessories and tons and tons of books. Teachers have proven that they are resilient and flexible, and we’re honored to have done our small part to help navigate a new normal.


As we wind down this school year and begin to look towards the next, remember that GrantEd remains the reliable resource it has always been for teachers! We will start taking grant requests again in July for August awards and we look forward to seeing the different ways teachers solve instructional challenges as schools seek ways to best accommodate required learning outcomes while keeping children and families healthy and safe--whether that means partial at-school attendance, rolling group instruction with reduced class sizes, or continued at-home instruction. Our aim is to help teachers pivot in whatever ways are necessary to best serve their studentsat no personal cost. Here are just some of the requests GrantEd has funded in the last few weeks!
