ING Unsung Heroes Program Invites K-12 Educators to Apply for 2015 Class Project Awards

Through its Unsung Heroes awards program, financial services company ING annually recognizes K-12 educators in the United States for their innovative teaching methods, creative educational projects, and ability to positively influence the children they teach.

Each year, one hundred educators are selected to receive awards of $2,000 each to help fund their innovative class projects. At least one award will be granted in each of the fifty United States, provided one or more qualified applications are received from each state. Of the one hundred finalists, three will be selected for additional financial awards. First place will receive $25,000; second place will receive $10,000; and the third-place winner will receive $5,000. All awards must be used to further the projects within the school or school system.

All K-12 education professionals are eligible to apply. Applicants must be employed by an accredited K-12 public or private school located in the U.S. and be a full-time educator, teacher, principal, paraprofessional, or classified staff member working on a project with demonstrated effectiveness in improving student learning. Previous recipients of ING Unsung Heroes awards are not eligible to apply for another award.

Complete program guidelines, the application form, and information on previously funded projects are available at the ING website. 


 Baseball Tomorrow Fund Invites Applications from Youth Baseball and Softball Programs

The Baseball Tomorrow Fund is a joint initiative of Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Association.

BTF awards grants to nonprofit organizations involved in the operation of youth baseball and softball programs and facilities. The funds may be used to finance a new program, expand or improve an existing program, undertake a new collaborative effort, or obtain facilities or equipment necessary for youth baseball or softball programs. Grants are intended to provide funding for incremental programming and facilities for youth baseball and softball programs, not for normal operating expenses or as a substitute for existing funding or fundraising activities.

BTF does not specify a maximum grant award; however, the average grant amount is approximately $40,000.

To be eligible, applicants must be a nonprofit and tax-exempt organization involved in the operation of youth baseball and/or softball programs and facilities. Organizations operating in the U.S. and international locations are eligible to apply.

Visit the BTF website for complete program guidelines, an FAQ, information about past recipients, and application instructions.

Lowe's Charitable and Education Foundation Accepting Applications for Toolbox for Education Grants

The Lowe's Charitable and Education Foundation has announced the opening of its Spring 2014 Toolbox for Education, which supports projects that encourage parent involvement in local schools and build stronger community spirit.

One-year grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded in support of projects that have a permanent impact on a school community such as a facility enhancement (indoor or outdoor) or landscaping/clean-up project. In addition, Toolbox grants can be used as part of a large-scale project like the construction of playground as long as the funds are used to complete a phase of the project within twelve months of the grant award.

To be eligible for a grant, applicants must be a public K-12 school or nonprofit parent group associated with such a school. Parent groups that are applying (PTO, PTA, etc.) must have an independent EIN and official 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. Preschools are not eligible to apply.

The application process will be closed after fifteen hundred applications have been received.

Complete application instructions and program guidelines, as well as lists of past grant recipients, are available on the Toolbox for Education website.

Good Sports is offering grants for Equipment!

Good Sports helps to lay the foundation for healthy, active lifestyles by providing athletic equipment, footwear, and apparel to disadvantaged young people nationwide.


Youth sports programs have faced severe budget cuts in most geographies and many organizations respond by shifting the costs to families in the form of higher fees. In some communities, this can effectively exclude disadvantaged children from joining teams. (Over 60% of suburban youth participate in sports leagues compared to just 20% of urban youth.)


By partnering with sporting goods manufacturers, Good Sports is able to provide equipment, apparel, and footwear to programs in need. This lowers their costs which helps them keep fees affordable, create more scholarships, enhance the quality of their activities, and introduce new sports into their schools or organizations.


Good Sports wants to help kids in need stay active! If you or your team is in need of equipment, Good Sports may be able to help. Visit the Good Sports website to apply today!
