Grants For Teachers

Grants 4 Teachers funds highly creative ideas that otherwise would be impossible to implement in the classroom due to school system funding constraints. We want to help fund teachers' creative ideas to stimulate and inspire our students’ learning. Grants are awarded from a minimum of $100 to a maximum of $500. A volunteer committee of citizens including retired teachers, business people and parents review the applications.

In 2015 thirty-two teachers in Anne Arundel County public schools were able to stretch their students’ imaginations and skill sets thanks to grants from the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County’s Grants 4 Teachers Fund. Projects touch 24 different schools in all parts of the County and were each funded in amounts from $200-500 for a total of $14,756.00.  Since the Fall of 2009 when Grants 4 Teachers was launched, due to the generosity of local donors the Community Foundation has funded 122 proposals for a total of $53,404.

Examples of previously funded projects include musical instruments and art supplies, paperback books for students to take home and share with their parents, field trips to reinforce social studies or science lessons, and technical equipment to promote scientific investigations.
