LEARN Foundation was founded to offer mini-grants to secondary students to provide them with access to powerful educational experiences. Mini-grants generally come in the amount of $100, but specific requests for slightly larger amounts may be considered with good cause. Additionally, LEARN Foundation provides a Funding Platform for receiving donations and other fundraising by educational groups organizing trips. Applications for Educational Mini-Grants are reviewed twice a year in September and March. Funding Platform applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
In addition to its internal operations, LEARN Foundation is happy to provide program services and fiscal sponsorship to PeaceJam Northwest, the regional affiliate of the international education organization. Headed by 14 Nobel Peace Prize winners, including the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu and Jody Williams, PeaceJam educates teens in the most pressing global issues, inspires them by the lives and work of Nobel Laureates, and mobilizes them into action by helping them devise service projects addressing these global issues at a local level.
