This is how the Kids In Need Foundation operates: through a national network of Resource Centers, teachers can get free supplies for their students who are in need. We do not donate supplies directly to other organizations or families. The supplies must be acquired through teachers who have shopping privileges at the Resource Centers. All supplies donated to us by manufacturers and retailers go immediately to the Resource Centers. We do not have a warehouse from which we can draw supplies, so we do not donate supplies directly to other organizations, schools, families, or individuals.

The Kids In Need Foundation Presents the Elmer's Teacher Tool Kit Grants

Elmer's Teacher Tool KitThe Kids In Need Foundation and Elmer's Products Inc., an industry leader in adhesives, arts and crafts, office and educational products, offer the Teacher Tool Kit Grant Program.

For 17 years Kids In Need has been funding exceptional classroom projects through our Teacher Grants program. Now the funding to conduct these projects in your own classroom will be available. We believe creative lesson plans should be an active part of any school's core curriculum, something Elmer's believes, also. Together we will provide teachers with the tools to strengthen critical thinking skills, creativity, and core knowledge among students.

The Elmer's Teacher Tool Kit grant awards will be based on:

Please Note: Special consideration will be given to projects submitted by first year teachers and to projects that include a community service component, but all certified K-12 teachers in the U.S. are encouraged to apply and all types of projects, with or without a community service component, will be considered for funding..

Kids In Need greatly appreciates Elmer's sponsorship of this program, another way to engage students in the learning process and support students' success at school and in the future.
