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.
Each year, with the support of our donors, Enchanted Backpack commits to providing a minimum of two grants up to $20,000 and some years as many as five.
Schools are invited to apply for consideration under the Adopt-A-School Program in the academic year following their mobile van delivery.
