2014 Awarded Grants

In our sixth year of operation, the Snapdragon Book Foundation was quite pleased to receive nearly 400 grant applications from public, private, and charter schools across the nation. After much thought and review, grants ranging from $2,250 to $15,000 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; the quality of applications this year was truly remarkable and made our decisions very very difficult. We apologize in advance for not being able to give specific feedback on proposals and hope that you’ll consider reapplying next year. The 2015 application will be available on the website in January.
