Grants and Funding

How to get funding for bringing KIBO into your school or center?

There are different ways to get funding for initiating a KIBO robotics program in your school or center. Here are some resources that teachers and parents have used in the past:

National Support:

Offers programs to support STEM in the classroom with a research component associated to it.

State and District Support:

Different states and districts have their own sources for getting funding for STEM related programs in the form of grants.

School Support:

Different school systems have ways for funding innovative programs, through educational foundations, special grants and dedicated budgets.

PTA Fundraising:

Each school has a local parent association that can organize and support fundraising events to buy KIBO kits.

Corporations:

High tech companies are interested in supporting STEM programs to cultivate their future workforce. Many of those have associated foundations or a corporate giving program.

Crowd Funding:

There are also crowd funding sources where educators can request assistance in purchasing products such as KIBO. Check out Adopt A Classroom, Digital Wish, Donors Choose (submit a Special Request project!), and PledgeCents.
