Special Grant Programs
Community Building Grant
Now accepting applications for Fall 2017-Winter 2018 – Due October 15, 2017 (link below)
At a time when our country feels tense and divided, CLiF has designed a grant opportunity to help build bridges and strengthen relationships between different groups within communities. CLiF has selected three programs that succeeded in achieving this goal.
- Reading Buddies for Seniors
- 1000 Books Before Kindergarten
- My Community Story offered by Young Writers Project
CLiF Write to Read Contest
The Children’s Literacy Foundation is having a book giveaway contest! We have copious quantities of many titles in our onsite library and we would like to donate classroom sets to your classroom library!
The competition is simple, the participating teacher should write a quick note telling us which book you would like (please provide us with top three choices if applicable), what grade/s you teach, and how many students are in your class. Then have your students answer the following prompt: Why do you think that your classroom should receive a brand new class set of books?
