Maybe something here would help. Writing a grant isn't that hard- just time
consuming.. You could do it. Betsy

   The Bell Atlantic Foundation has grants to support organizations that
   improve education, community services, and the arts. The foundation's
   education funding has a technological bent, providing schools with
   access to equipment, integrating technology into the classroom, and
   helping train teachers to use these advances more effectively. Get more

   The Carolyn Foundation supports the education and development of
   children, youths and families; and arts and culture in New Haven, CT,

   collaborations between school districts and higher education
   institutions. Projects should reach a large audience and be adaptable
   for dissemination. In considering proposals to support high school
   teaching, collaborative partnerships between the faculties of colleges
   (e.g., arts, sciences and education) and high schools or combined
   efforts involving reform organizations, colleges/universities and high
   schools are encouraged. Proposals may cover a wide range of initiatives
   to improve teaching. Project examples include teacher professional
   development and use of new technologies to enhance teaching methods.

   issues on a national level. Grants typically range from $75,000 to

   ievement. GenCorp favors community-based initiatives that promote
