New Jersey educator grants: call for proposals

The Foundation for Impact on Literacy and Learning is a nonprofit organization with a mission to help provide a better future for our children. Our teachers strive every day to make this happen, and it’s no surprise that teachers often reach into their own pockets to fill their classroom with supplies. The Help Our Teachers Fund program seeks to remove the burden of providing necessary resources from teachers to help fuel a semester of active learning for their entire class. 

Applications are now open, and you are invited to apply for the Help Our Teachers Fund 2022 grants.  

The ADP Foundation, for the second year, has generously donated $5,000 to Help Our Teachers Fund, specifically for New Jersey teachers—10 grants up to $500 each. Help Our Teachers Fund grant recipients may receive up to $500 to use to enhance their students’ learning experience.  

In the past, the grant recipients have used the funds for many items such as student headphones, digital learning programs, supplies for project-based learning and fitness items. A teacher working in an urban school in New Jersey was seeking diverse reading materials for students who often did not have access to books to read at home. 

Applicants to the Help Our Teachers Fund must be employed by an accredited K-12 public or private school located in New Jersey.

  • Full-time teachers, other certificated staff, and paraprofessionals with effective and innovative projects that improve student learning may apply. 
  • Applicants must be verified by the school superintendent, principal or applicant’s immediate supervisor. If selected as a recipient, the school official will be contacted to verify your employment status and proposed project. 
  • Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, age, sexual orientation gender or gender identity, disability, or national origin. 

Applications must be submitted on or before Oct. 3, 2022 for the 2022-23 school year.
