Kids Bowl Free – Teacher Grant Program

Kids Bowl Free & Participating Centers Sponsor 

$100,000 Classroom Supply Grant Program

Kids Bowl Free and participating bowling centers are teaming up to help educators offset their growing out of pocket expenses. Kids Bowl Free has been working closely with teachers, school administrators and bowling centers over the past four summers to help provide a safe, fun activity for children while they are on summer break.
Many teachers have expressed their concern of budget cuts and the inability to have all of the teaching aids they need for their students to have the best learning environment possible. The Bowling To Teachers program is a small step to helping 400 teachers improve their learning experience for their students.
For teachers that would like to apply visit www.BowlingToTeachers.com to complete the short grant application. 80 grants per month will be awarded from March through the end of July 2013.
