Funding & Recognition

Books for Disadvantaged Children

The Snapdragon Book Foundation provides funds to improve school libraries for disadvantaged children. Founded by a former school librarian, the foundation exists to put books in the hands of students. Grant funding is to be spent on traditional books and processing fees—barcoding and spine labels, for example. Other media, such as posters, arts and crafts supplies, software, hardware, and online databases, are not eligible. The foundation is not likely to fund projects that include significant technology unless the technology use has a strong connection to the organization’s mission. The grants are awarded to public, private, charter, and experimental preK–grade 12 schools in the United States and its territories. They typically range from $2,500 to $10,000.

Deadline: April 20, 2018, for applications
