Pay It Forward

I saw this opportunity today in eSchoolNews and had to pass it on. As I hear from teachers across Arizona I am always looking for ways to encourage them to consider writing a grant. This seems to be a perfect "starter" grant for a classroom teacher with a group of students who have a good idea but need some funds to get started.

I hope you will consider applying -- and I hope you will keep me posted if you do apply as I would love to help publicize how you and your students are paying it forward!

Pay It Forward Mini-Grants are designed to fund one-time-only service-oriented projects identified by youth as activities they would like to perform to benefit their school, neighborhood, or greater community. Projects must contain a "pay it forward" focus - that is, they must be based on the concept of one person doing a favor for others, who in turn do favors for others, with the results growing exponentially - to be considered in the grant making process.
