2013 Awarded Grants

In our fifth year of operation, the Snapdragon Book Foundation was quite pleased to receive nearly 500 grant applications from public, private, and charter schools across the nation. After much thought and review, grants ranging from $1,300 to $20,000 have been awarded to the schools below for their exemplary proposals and innovative programs. Winners have been notified via email. Many thanks to all who applied; this was our most competitive application year to date. We apologize in advance for not being able to give specific feedback on proposals and hope that you’ll consider reapplying next year. The 2014 application will be available in January
