I,too,have a child in private school. When trying to find
grants for private schools, you will find a lot of times that
they only give to public schools.
If your school is not a 501 (3)(c) non- profit, it needs to
apply to the IRS for such status as many foundations want to be
able to write off donations on their taxes.
Secondly, go to a funding library in your state. These
libraries have extensive reference books with foundations
listed in them. Many foundations do not even have websites but
contact/guideline information are in these books. They can
break down the foundations geographically as well as other
criteria like if they fund private schools. Go online and look
for the funding libraries in your state. Now the reference
section in just about any library will have information. But
funding libraries tend to have more.
