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. In a time when many schools are reallocating their funds to technology and audiovisual equipment, Snapdragon Book Foundation hopes to make sure that school libraries are still offering children good books to read.
Grant funding is to be spent on traditional books, processing or cataloguing fees, reference materials for student use, and magazine or newspaper subscriptions. 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.
Grants are awarded to public, private, and charter prekindergarten through grade 12 schools in the United States and its territories. Applications must be submitted online through the application form available on the foundation website.
Eligibility: Public, Private, Other (including homeschool, 501 (c)(3) organizations), Charter
Award: Awards range from $2,500 to $10,000.
Deadline: Applications are accepted November 1 through February 14, 2021.
