Children's Fund Offers Grant Opportunities


Gottsegen, Abby, Roth, Mark, Winter, Beverly, National Association of School Psychologists. Communique


The NASP Children's Fund, Inc. was established in 1986 as a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Children's Fund accepts and disburses funds for charitable purposes that are consistent with the priorities of the organization.

* Embrace individual and group differences of children and youth based on gender and diverse ethnic, cultural, language, and experiential backgrounds

The Children's Fund welcomes monetary donations, bequests, and dedicated gifts, as well as articles for auction at the NASP annual convention. In addition, the Children's Fund offers several grant opportunities.

Mental Health Start-Up Grants in the amount of $500 are intended to encourage school psychologists to enhance their own capabilities to provide mental health services within their schools. Acceptable purchases include therapeutic videotapes and games, relaxation tapes, classroom guidance materials, and books.

Service Grants in amounts of $500 to $2,500 are available and must provide direct benefit to children. Among those grants that have been approved in the last several years include a district-wide community reading day, a project focusing on prevention of bullying, and a project that provided a gifted and talented lending library and resource bank for families of gifted children in an economically underprivileged neighborhood. …
