WHAT’S A GRATITUDE GRANT?

Each year, the Chamberlin Family Foundation offers Gratitude Grants for West Contra Costa teachers to fund classroom supplies and resources (e.g. books, materials, and software) or professional development. Each teacher grant can total up to $250. Gratitude Grants will be distributed as American Express gift cards which can be used to purchase the items described in the teacher’s application.

Applications Open: Monday, January 28, 2019

Deadline EXTENDED: FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 2019

Gratitude Grant applications will be processed on a rolling-basis and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Teachers: get your applications in today!
