Teachers from coast to coast can find funds to conduct innovative, hands-on learning projects in their classrooms through the Kids In Need Foundation’s Ready, Steady, GO! Program.
Supported financially by the Office Depot Foundation in conjunction with the Office Depot® Star Teacher Program, the program enabled the Kids In Need Foundation to award grants of $100 to $500 to 99 teachers in 31 states in 2012. The Kids In Need Foundation, a longstanding partner with the Office Depot Foundation, is dedicated to providing free school supplies to economically disadvantaged school children and under-funded teachers.
In the past five years, the Office Depot Foundation has made it possible for more than 675 teachers to inspire creativity in their classrooms thanks to financial grants in partnership with the Kids In Need Foundation.
