The Dan Paul Foundation offers funding to help children have all the resources they would need in life to be happy, fulfilled and contributing members of society. The foundation will use its resources to help train teachers and parents in early childhood development, protect children from abuse and neglect, stimulate their personal social responsibilities, and offer them opportunities for enrichment and growth into adulthood and beyond. Child advocacy and protection, teaching social responsibility to the environment, the homeless, and poverty-stricken and underprivileged, and scientific endeavors and advancement in health to improve quality of life are also areas that may be funded. Grants typically range from a few hundred dollars up to a maximum of $20,000. The deadline for this grant is August 31.
