California Community Forests Foundation (CCFF) is providing small grants to groups working with kids in order to get them outside and learning!
“Outdoor Classroom Grants”
CCFF is awarding grants of up to $250 to assist in the development of outdoor classrooms or school gardens in California.
This grant supports teachers, other educators, and community members working in partnership to develop an outdoor classroom for child use — in particular, projects that demonstrate integration of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) principles, and that include a plan for long-term sustainability.
“Kids and California’s Oaks”
CCFF will award up to ten $500 grants to support schools, agencies, and/or not-for-profit organizations’ plans to involve California’s school-age youth (Pre-K through 12th grade) in getting to know California’s oaks.
This grant looks for groups using specialized curriculum (such as “Investigating the Oak Community”) or any service-learning along with proposed activities. This grant also seeks to connect the youth involved to “STEM” (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) principles.
Please contact Kay Antunez of CCFF with any further questions.
