Teachers regularly purchase classroom aids and supplies out-of-pocket in order to provide our children with the tools and building blocks necessary for academic achievement. In recognition of their efforts, Assisting Children Through Teachers, Inc. (Project ACTT) was formed—to financially assist Triangle educators who too frequently assume and shoulder fiscal responsibility for the education of our youth. It is our hope that, by doing so, we will provide students with more opportunities for success.
Project ACTT is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
Monetary grants will be awarded to classroom teachers who demonstrate a specific need for educational aids, supplies, or projects that are designed to serve the long-term benefit of children receiving a public education in the Triangle and which promote innovative and best North Carolina teaching practices.
In order to qualify for a grant, you must be an active, K-12, public school classroom teacher who works in Durham, Orange, or Wake County. Because of our limited funding, we are not able to grant an award to any teacher who has been awarded proceeds by another organization for the same or similar purpose during the same academic year. Please note, however, that financial assistance from the PTA will not disqualify you from receiving an ACTT grant.
Grant applications will become available through our website on or after September 30th, 2015. Grants will range from $25.00 to $150.00 based on need and merit. Because we are largely dependent on community funding, we are unable to specify the exact number of grants that will be awarded at this time.
This Corporation, which is organized under the Non-Profit Corporation Act of North Carolina, shall operate exclusively for charitable and educational purposes, and in a manner consistent with Chapter 55A of the General Statutes of North Carolina and of Section 501(c)(3) or successor provisions of the Internal Revenue Code.
