2024 Awarded Grants

In our sixteenth year of operation, the Snapdragon Book Foundation was pleased to receive over 770 applications from all types of schools and from nearly every state in the country! Grants ranging from $400 to $10,000 have been awarded to the deserving schools below. Winners will be additionally notified the first week in May via email. We apologize for not being able to give specific feedback on proposals and hope that you’ll consider reapplying next year. Check back in August for our announcement of the 2024 “Next Up” school, our fall fundraiser to raise money for one more lucky school.
