How to Get a Grant:

With educational funding stretched thin, finding ways to raise money for needed classroom equipment might seem like a challenge, but it may be easier and more available than you think.  Some of these sources may seem like a stretch, but if you think creatively, or have a good grant writer on board, you may be surprised at how many of them will be applicable. Obviously we cannot list all granting sources for each state or region, so check within your area for a state or private organization knowledgeable about funding sources.
