Teaching Tolerance Grant Program
The Teaching Tolerance project of the Southern Poverty Law Center offers grants of up to $2,000 to K-12 classroom teachers for implementing tolerance and youth activism projects in their schools and communities. Proposals from other educators such as community organizations and churches will be considered on the basis of direct student impact.

Eligibility:Classroom teachers, community organizations, churches

Funding:Projects funded by Teaching Tolerance tend to be small-scale, resourceful and student-focused, promoting acceptance of diversity, peacemaking, community service or any other aspect of tolerance education; clearly defined, well-integrated and tailored to the specified needs and interests of particular learners and their communities; economically responsible, involving staff participation, community volunteers and in-kind contributions wherever possible; and sustainable in some way, rather than one-time-only events or activities.
