Ezra Jack Keats Foundation Grants

Type: Foundations
Source: Ezra Jack Keats Foundation
Program: Ezra Jack Keats Foundation Grants
Eligibility: We accept applications from public schools, public libraries, and preschool Head Start programs in the United States and U.S commonwealths and territories, including Puerto Rico and Guam.
Purpose: Public Education Is One Of The Greatest Legacies Of Our Country, One That Benefits Children From Every Walk Of Life. For Keats, It Was At Public School That He Received His Greatest Encouragement To Pursue His Vocation As An Artist. And The Public Library Was A Haven That Introduced Him To The Wonders Of Art History.

To Offer A Similar Experience To New Generations, The Ezra Jack Keats Foundation Created A Funding Initiative Called Minigrants, Through Which Awards Of $500 Are Given To Public Schools And Public Libraries For Projects That Foster Creative Expression, Working Together And Interaction With A Diverse Community. They Also Represent An Opportunity For Educators, Whose Efforts Are Often Inadequately Funded Or Recognized, To Create Special Activities Outside The Standard Curriculum And Make Time To Encourage Their Students.
