The following pictures so some of the projects we covered last year. Applying for these grants is easy. Even if you don’t need a grant this year, look at what your membership could cover for others:
Basic Needs Grants support the basic needs of children and youth so that those without the means to acquire these can participate fully in school instruction. These grants have been used to provide such things as food, clothing, eyeglasses, hearing aids, personal hygiene items, and school supplies to those in need.
Mental Health Grants assist school psychologists in acquiring materials for mental health interventions in schools. Such funds have been used to enhance the social skills, emotional regulation, coping skills, and adaptive skills of children and youth.
Youth Empowerment Grants enable school psychologists to assist youth in developing innovative mental health interventions that focus on the development of positive behaviors. In addition to the prevention/early intervention emphasis of these grants, an opportunity for the development of youth leadership skills is provided.
Service Grants are awarded to school psychologists for outcomes-based service delivery to grade levels, entire schools, or school districts. These grants encourage districts to provide services via ‘seed’ money or matching grants to develop programs for mental health intervention.
Host City Project Each year when members of the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) travel to a city for the annual convention, the CF works to ensure that our profession is viewed as making a difference in that city. We work with the local NASP Conference Committee and local charities to select a charity or charities in the host city to receive such funds. CF is working on the Host City Project 2018 for Chicago! Last year, in San Antonio we participated in a landscaping and cleaning project at Morgan's Wonderland, a cultural and environmental theme park for children and youth with special needs and a literacy project with San Antonio Reads.
Annual Children’s Fund Auction - Each year during the NASP convention, the Children's Fund holds a live and silent auction. Proceeds from the auction are used to help fund grants and the host city projects as well.
