Grants to USA and territories educators for projects benefiting PreK-12 students. Funding is intended for classroom, school, or district-wide projects that encourage social-emotional growth. Grant funds may be used to support or expand an existing project or to start a new initiative.
NoVo Foundation is committed to supporting the spread of social and emotional learning (SEL) practices in schools and districts nationwide. NoVo Foundation, in partnership with Education First and Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, aims to seed projects that foster social and emotional competencies in students in grades PK-12.
Though all proposals are welcome, the Foundation also seeks proposals that specifically support one or more of the following student populations:
This grant program focuses on educators as key catalysts in supporting all students and changing schools. The NoVo Foundation wants to lift up, celebrate and learn from educators. At the same time, the Foundation wants programs and systems to be able to build and foster much greater compassion, to honor the lived experiences of students, to build skills in people and groups to embrace and understand differences, and to work through challenges to promote healing from all forms of trauma and harm. Space can and must be created for educators and students to imagine, build and lead us toward a better future built on racial and gender equity, social justice, and restorative practices.
