The Snapdragon Book Foundation provides funds to improve school libraries for disadvantaged children. Founded by a former school librarian, this foundation exists to put books in the hands of students.
Grant funding is to be spent on traditional books, as well as processing fees (e.g. barcoding, spine labels, etc.). Other media, such as posters, arts and crafts supplies, software, hardware, or online databases, is not eligible. Projects that include significant technology are not likely to be funded unless they express a strong connection to the mission of the organization.
Applications must be submitted online through the application form available on the foundation website.
Eligibility: Public, private, charter, and experimental prekindergarten through grade 12 schools in the United States and its territories.
Award: Awards range from $2,500 to $10,000
Deadline: Applications are accepted January through April 20
