Grant Resources for Teachers

With budgets under great strain and fuel prices hindering travel, the Capitol Center’s Development department has put together a list of funding resources for NH educators to contact when looking for assistance in funding tickets and buses for School Series performances.

It is recommended that teachers contact each foundation through a phone call or letter of inquiry prior to developing an application. While we have tried to identify foundations which may be responsive to a proposal from a school or school district, every foundation is different and has different guidelines and funding priorities.

And if you can partner with another school or present an application from an entire SAU, the review committee might look on your proposal more favorably.
