SUBJECT:   Grant Opportunities


The Target Field Trip Grant program provides funds for K-12 field trips in order to give students throughout the country the opportunity to explore more of the world outside the classroom. Grants of up to $700 each will be awarded to educators, teachers, principals, paraprofessionals, and classified staff who are employed by accredited K-12 public, private, or charter schools.

Parents, PTOs, after-school programs, Pre-K centers, and other nonprofit organizations are not eligible to apply.

Types of funded trips include art, science, and cultural museum visits; community service and civic projects; career enrichment opportunities; and other events or activities away from the school facility. Funds may be used from January 2014 until the end of the school year to cover trip-related costs such as transportation, ticket fees, food, resource materials, and supplies.

Online applications must be submitted by October 1, 2013. For more information, please visit the Target website to learn more about the program.

The State Farm Good Neighbor Citizenship Company Grants Program is committed to helping build safer, stronger, and better educated communities across the United States and Canada.

In addition to auto, teen driver, and home safety, the Safety Grants focus on disaster preparedness and recovery.  The emphasis of Education Grants is on basic economics, budget counseling, and foreclosure prevention counseling.  Education grants also target public K-12  service-learning programs.

Applications will be accepted from September 3 through October 31, 2013.  Application guidelines are available on the State Farm website at:
