Hello! I was contacted by Cynthia Busse from AWE Learning (early learning computer/software vendor). In our conversations she offered to share her list of grant opportunities me, specifically requesting I pass them on to the library community. Most of these grants are not specific to AWE Learning products so I agreed to share them with you-i.e. they may make funding available for a variety of library/literacy projects you are seeking to fund.

NOTE: I have not reviewed the grant opportunities on her list so you will want to review them yourself before taking any action, but this should be a good starting point for grant seeking.
