Grant for Teaching

Grant for Impactful Teaching

The Junior League of Kane & DuPage Counties, Inc. (JLKD) invites teachers to apply for the 2017 JLKD Teachers’ Grant. JLKD encourages and supports excellence in teaching by awarding grants to educators who present outstanding student programming. This year, JLKD will award a minimum of one $1,000 grant to a teacher or teaching group for an impactful program or project that otherwise would not be provided for in the school budget.

To qualify, teachers must be employed full- or part-time at any public or private school serving students who are in pre-k through fifth grade, and the school or program serves 20 percent or more of children from a “low-income family/household*” within DuPage, Kane, Kendall, or Will Counties, Illinois.

JLKD is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.

Please contact grants@jlkd.org with any questions or to request additional information.
