Landmark Vineyards believes that investing in education is an investment in the future.
Teachers, we know you want to help your students reach their full potential, but don’t always have the resources you need to do so. From musical instruments to graphing calculators to innovative field trips, no one understands what your students need better than you.
To support you in helping your students learn and thrive, Landmark is offering $30,000 to fund classroom supplies and field trips during the 2018-2019 school year.
Landmark School Grants support supplies or
field trips that directly impact student
Furniture (e.g., bookshelves, wobble chairs, rugs), staffing or professional development are not eligible.
Grants may be up to $1,000.
Project costs should not exceed $1,000, as we are unable to partially fund projects.
Each teacher is only eligible for one grant, so be sure to post your best idea!
How to Apply
Landmark School Grants uses DonorsChoose.org to receive, vet and fulfill grant requests.
For supplies, DonorsChoose.org has a huge list of vendors and items for you to choose from. If you are selected as a grant recipient, the items you chose will be purchased on your behalf and sent directly to your school.
For field trips, you will be asked to upload a price quote for your trip. If you are selected as a grant recipient, DonorsChoose.org will help coordinate the logistics and directly pay expenses. Please note that the proposed date for your field trip must be at least two months from the date you post your project.
DonorsChoose.org makes requesting a grant as easy as 1, 2, 3...
