Teachers -
I've compiled a list of grants that you might be interested in applying for.  Many have deadlines in September and October, but some are open ended.  There is a brief paragraph of information about the grant or grant foundation and a link to the website. 
I know there are many great project ideas out there you might already have in the works or recurring service projects you do every year. 
Free money to make those happen is a great thing!
Good luck!
