Check out these three PE grant opportunities to help secure funding for your program:

Hearst Foundation – Education Grants

The Hearst Foundations support well-established nonprofit organizations that address important issues within our major areas of interests- education, health, culture, and social service- and that primarily serve large demographic and/or geographic constituencies. Within these areas, the Foundations generally provide endowment, program, and capital grant support. Private nonprofits with significant support from the philanthropic community are favored over those financed through government sources. The Foundations use an open submission process, and proposals are welcomed throughout the year.
