It’s time to apply for 2013 LEAP Grants

Want to make a difference in your community?  Are you part of a nonprofit organization or a library that wants to have a local impact on literacy and education?  We may be able to fund it for you.

Every year, we award LEAP Grants (the Literacy and Education in Action Program) to nonprofits and libraries with an idea to have a lasting impact on communities where the need is high.

Past grant recipients include a specialized training program for 100 primary school teachers in rural Nepal, an early literacy skill development program in Guatemala, a Read and Return bookmobile in Michigan, a library and resource center in Bhutan, and an early literacy preschool kit and activity calendar in Ohio.

And those are just the 2012 winners!  You can view all past LEAP Grant recipients here: nonprofit winners, and library winners.

Applications are now open for this year’s LEAP Grants.  You can download them as follows:

All applications are due on April 5th, so be sure to get them in as soon as you can.  Winners will be announced in May.  If you have any questions about LEAP Grants or the selection the process, just let us know at:
