Has anyone ever applied for any type of classroom grant for your SPED classroom? If so, what is a good one to apply for?

What are you looking to do with your grant monies?

I have had a range of success with DonorsChoose, but they take a big chunk for misc stuff, and you have limited vendors. Plus I hate that the whole point of DonorsChoose is for me to go out and beg friends and family for stuff. Also with DonorsChoose there is no clear cut understanding of who the materials you buy belong to. My former district it was up to the admin and they didn't care one way or the other. My current one (much smaller) makes it seem like they belong to the district.

A peer used GoFundMe to raise funds for a special purpose classroom project. After a fee she got the funds and could spend them how she wanted to. Great if you want to use your Amazon Prime Benefits!

I also reached out on Craigslist for some freebie, and even on the free boards I got crap for being a "free loading teacher".

Good luck!

I applied for and received several grants from our local (state's) Public School Foundation. Check out what is available in your area. Good Luck!
