2020 AASA | Sourcewell Helping Kids Mini Grant Awardees

Since 2012, Sourcewell and AASA have joined forces to bring the Helping Kids Program, an urgent mini grant that is funded by AASA through a partnership with Sourcewell, to AASA and Sourcewell members. This year the grant has been increased to $70,000 in grant funds to help meet the urgent health, social service, academic and/or related needs of individual students and their families. Examples include clothing, medical care, dental care, eyeglasses, prescriptions, hearing aids, food, shelter, supplies, fuel, emergency transportation, childcare, enrichment and academic or life-enhancing opportunities that could not otherwise be provided.

Sourcewell is AASA's Premier School Solutions Center Partner. We would like to thank Sourcewell for its continuing support of AASA and for supporting students in need through the Helping Kids Program.
