Grace, Yes, Grantwrangler is a good source for finding grants; but, unless you establish a clear vision for the grant you'll be wasting each others time. For a typical grant (let's just say the one for Dollar General that offers up to $5,000 for media centers to purchase new equipment) they are probably going to get several thousand requests for money. Ones that don't establish a clear action plan won't be considered. It's great to want new computers for the classroom; but, how are you going to use them? How are you going to use digital cameras? You also have to include the budget -- how exactly are you going to spend the money? You need to cite research backing up your request -- and how it will have a positive impact on students. You need an evaluation plan - that will show the grantor that your grant is replicable to other grades. ******* Jeff Hogan, M.S.
