Grants for Promoting an Affirming School Climate

Educators hoping to develop programs that fight bigotry in schools and create safe and welcoming classrooms for all students can apply for funding under the Teaching Tolerance Educator Grants program. The initiative offers grants ranging from $500 to $5,000 for projects that serve marginalized students, promote an affirming school climate, and educate young people to thrive in a diverse democracy. The grants will fund two types of projects: school-level and classroom-level. At the school level, leadership teams will use the grants to improve school climate, reduce hate, support culturally responsive practices, and implement antibias curricula. At the classroom level, teachers will use the grants to fund programming that promotes empathy and kindness, positive identity development, perspective taking, critical thinking about injustice, and collective action. Whether implemented at the school or classroom level, the projects should culminate in measurable student outcomes and demonstrable student work. Educators who work in public or private K–12 schools, as well as alternative schools, therapeutic schools, and juvenile justice facilities, are eligible to apply.
