Funding & grants


S'Cool Life Fund

We fund D.R.E.A.M.S.

Every student in a public elementary school should be provided with opportunities that make school life exciting, interesting and most importantly, FUN!

Since launching in 2005, the S'Cool Life Fund has provided grants for over 1,100 D.R.E.A.M.S. (Drama, Recreation, Extra-Curricular, Arts, Music, or Sports) projects across the country worth over $2.9 MILLION helping to make school life more enjoyable for thousands of public elementary school kids (JK-8).
