CT Office of the Arts
Arts Learning Presentation grants encourage opportunities for learners of all ages. Connecticut has a rich and varied landscape of arts organizations, venues, and providers of arts learning opportunities. Through its Arts Learning Presentation grants COA seeks to connect Pre-K through Grade 12 schools and citizens with a Connecticut arts experience. Arts Learning Presentation Grants may support presenters* in providing arts access /exposure experiences for CT citizens - particularly those who might not otherwise be able to enjoy them.
Target Field Trip Grants
Some of the best learning opportunities happen outside the classroom. We're bringing students once-in-a-lifetime learning experiences through field trips they'll never forget.As part of the program, Target stores award field trip grants to K-12 schools nationwide. Each grant is valued at $700. We accept grant applications between noon CT Aug. 1 and 11:59 p.m. CT Oct. 1.
Brown Rudnick Center
The Foundation’s Community Grants are smaller grants, capped at $2,000, designed to address a specific, one-time, tangible, and immediate need. Proposals are accepted on an ongoing basis from those on the "front lines" of education (the classroom teacher, student parent, school nurse, etc.) - the kind of need that those with funding authority don't appreciate or don't have the resources to make a priority.
Classics for Kids Foundation
If your school or non-profit organization believes in the role of fine instruments in your program, and can show evidence of need and commitment to raising matching funds, you are a strong candidate for the Classics for Kids matching grant program.Through our grants to strings programs, we also strengthen community support for music education. Our matching grants inspire local philanthropy and deeper, long-lasting connections with that local support.
