Funding Sources for Schools

Obtaining funding for a bullying and violence prevention program is often a major concern for schools. Community Matters offers resources and support to help you obtain funding support. This page contains a list of organizations that offer financial assistance grants. We also offer a Funding Toolkit (see sidebar at right) that contains sample templates for creating compelling grant proposals and suggestions for building community alliances that can help lead to increased funding. Please contact us if you need additional support or guidance at or 707.823.6159
