The Pipeline Project
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The Pipeline Project seeks proposals from nonprofit organizations, community groups and classroom teachers delivering hands-on STEAM programming to preK-12 youth who would not otherwise be served.
Non-profit and Community Group Proposals
For nonprofit organizations and community groups, engaging low-income preK-12 youth from Atlanta, Fulton County and DeKalb County in after-school and summer STEAM programming. The Pipeline Project is especially interested in community-based programs using innovative, creative methods to build demand among low-income youth and their families for STEAM programming.
Organizations and community groups seeking support for after-school and summer programs should begin by completing an online questionnaire. Based on its review of the questionnaire, AMBFF will invite a select number of organizations and community groups to move forward with formal grant applications. To fill out a questionnaire, log in and apply here. (NOTE: Log in does not require the invitation code)
Classroom Teacher Proposals
For classroom teachers, The Pipeline Project is partnering with DonorsChoose.org to consider requests for equipment and supplies that advance learning by doing. The Foundation will consider funding one-half of the cost of the equipment requests on DonorsChoose.org for selected eligible teachers. Once donors have funded 50 percent of the costs of the eligible DonorsChoose.org request, The Pipeline Project would provide the rest of the funding needed. Classroom teachers in “highest poverty” public schools in Atlanta Public Schools, Fulton County Schools and DeKalb County Schools are eligible for consideration. DonorsChoose.org denotes “highest poverty” schools as those where at least 65 percent of students receive free/reduced lunch. Both traditional public and public charter schools are eligible.
If you are a classroom teacher with an eligible project, submit it on DonorsChoose.org today. Your classroom project request may include the following keywords: STEAM and Pipeline Project and should be in STEAM subject areas (science and math, music & the arts). Classroom projects should also cost less than $2,500. (Projects that cost less than $600 are the most successful!) For guidance on submitting requests, teachers should go to the DonorsChoose.org help desk, http://help.donorschoose.org/hc/en-us.
