Grant Programs

School Start-up Grants

Applications Open on April 15, 2024

Start-up grants are designed to ensure that every Black Teacher Leader has sufficient capital to launch their microschool and begin from a place of abundance.

 

We want educators to feel secure, knowing that if they do their part, funding will be waiting for them, without the need to work multiple jobs or undercompensate themselves during the first year of operation.

Building A Community of Trust and Practice

When we engage in well-constructed, engaging, and relevant professional learning, we refine our practice and we amplify our impact in the organization. 

The Black Wildflowers Fund is also a community-engaged organization; therefore, ongoing learning is our professional responsibility.  Whenever possible, it should be differentiated by role, experience, and other needs.  Learning is an active process, it is not done to you.  It is the intersection of giving and receiving.

 

Professional learning offers experiences for us to deepen our awareness of self and others; teaches us new skills, strategies, and content; builds capacity; ensures our practices are current, and creates a space for collaboration and problem-solving.

 

Each February, we will hold an in person community gathering for all grant awardees and Black Teacher Leaders within the Wildflower network. We will also host a number of virtual events, and foster connections between everyone in the community, so they have the support they need.

Montessori Credential Grants for Black Educators

2024 Applications Are Closed

To invest in the future of Black leadership, we will provide grants to Black educators pursuing Montessori training through MACTE credentialed programs.

 

Our goal is to train and foster communities of practice for 60+ Black Montessori educators over the next three years.

Ignite School Innovation and Sustainability Grant

After schools open, systemic inequities continue to take a greater toll on Black school leaders than their white counterparts.

 

To combat this, we will offer “just-in-time” microgrants for Black-led microschools that need assistance overcoming unforeseen financial or legal challenges. Funding will also be available to support new innovative school projects.
