Enchanted Backpack engages with principals and teachers to determine needs beyond classroom supplies; projects such as playgrounds, enhanced reading centers, upgraded technology or other innovative ideas. This program addresses needs beyond classroom supplies that will support the school as a whole for years to come.
Annually, thanks to our generous donors, Enchanted Backpack offers at minimum one grant of $20,000, and in some years extend our commitment to as many as five smaller grants of $5,000.
Schools are invited to apply for consideration under the Adopt-A-School Program in the academic year following their mobile van delivery.
