There are three funding opportunities for CURRENT Sanford program partners:

CURRENT Harmony partners that are a school district or school may apply for grant support to implement Sanford Inspire, high-quality professional development modules to help ensure inspirational teachers are in every classroom. We believe teachers who hone their skills through Inspire’s research-based online modules will be stronger implementers of Harmony’s socio-emotional curriculum. These two-year awards are expected to range between $2,500 and $15,000 per year, depending on scale and impact. The two-year grants are designed to help districts and schools:

  • Integrate elected Inspire modules for teachers and/or after-school providers.
  • Partners agree to submit required monthly reporting to Sanford Programs

**Important: If you are a current Harmony partner that would like to expand Harmony implementation to additional schools, please contact us to discuss the training and classroom kits needed.**

CURRENT Inspire partners that are within a university’s College of Education may apply for support to leverage their existing Sanford partnership. These one-year grants will range between $15,000 and $75,000 depending on the scale of the effort and the impact that will be leveraged. Applicants must:

  • Provide a detailed plan on how they plan to improve/expand their Inspire implementation and sustain it in future years.
  • Partners agree to submit required monthly reporting to Sanford Programs

CURRENT Sanford Institute of Philanthropy affiliates may apply for support to leverage their existing Sanford partnership. These one-year grants will range between $15,000 and $75,000 depending on the scale of the effort and the impact that will be leveraged. Applicants must:

  • Provide a detailed plan on how they plan to improve/expand program and sustain it in future years.
  • Partners agree to submit required monthly reporting to Sanford Programs.
