LLF offers grants for teachers

To the editor:

Given the numerous cuts in public funding to education, there is a necessary reliance on other funding for Michigan educators and schools.

Literacy Legacy Fund of Michigan offers assistance to K-12 teachers and administrators to obtain professional development through a variety of grants.

For example, in 2013, LLF Michigan gave 8 grants for over $3,000, to qualifying teachers in Michigan.

For more information about the availability of grants, ways to donate to LLF Michigan, and previous recipients, please visit our website at www.literacylegacyfund.org. In 2014, we are pleased to offer grants in 4 different categories.

We invite you to be a donor or a grant applicant.
