School is out and the holidays have begun, but are you still looking to fund out-of-school projects, camps, or learning activities for your students? We compiled a few opportunities that are still open to applications.

The Redwoods Group Foundation offers funding for safety programs and projects. One of their focus areas is aquatic safety and drowning prevention. Funding may be used to fund swimming lessons for at-risk populations and non-swimmers, as well as recruitment and training of lifeguards. Other areas of interest include abuse prevention and transportation safety.

Applications are accepted year-round.


Kars4Kids supports educational and developmental programs for children and youth. Funding is available for out-of-school educational programming, summer and recreation camps, and cultural activities during the school holidays.
