The Ed Fund is excited to announce this year’s opportunity to apply for a Bradley Arts Mini-Grant. The aim of this year’s Bradley Arts Mini-Grants is to support students with their social, emotional and academic needs as they return to the classroom. The Ed Fund will be rewarding grants that support all students and will be providing impact points for projects that have an explicit focus on the needs of African American/Black students or that incorporate the art of African American/Black artists as we move to disrupt the historical inequities within our public education system.

Who: Anyone from the West Contra Costa community (teacher, student, community-based organization) can apply for a grant as long as the project supports a classroom or school within the West Contra Costa Unified School District.

What: Classroom grants of up to $500 are available to support projects serving individual classrooms. School-wide grants of up to $1,000 are available to support projects serving 3 or more classrooms (all school-wide grants require the principal’s approval). Grants can be used on: art supplies, visiting artists, scripts, materials, instruments, costumes/props, etc.

When: Application opens September 6, 2021 and closes September 30, 2021 at 5PM.
