Budget Guidelines Grantees Must Follow
Schools may choose to receive recycling bins and tools from this Material Support List (with free shipping), receive cash to purchase materials on their own, or a combination of both options. They encourage schools to patronize local businesses, use reusable or compostable items, and build or make items (e.g. tree guards or greenhouses) rather than purchase them. They do not fund the following items:
- Existing school curricula and long-standing programs
- Programs of staffed nonprofits based in the school
- Salaries and training fees
- Fees to large organizations of businesses
- Rent and utilities
- 501(c)(3) incorporation fees
- Luxury itemsSpeaker honorariums
- Back-to-school items
