    Submit Recommendations for Right Now Needs Fund

    At the beginning of the school year, Amazon made a generous donation of $2 million to our partner, Alliance for Education, to support improved learning for students in Seattle Public Schools.

    This grant, the Right Now Needs Fund, helps schools address barriers to learning by supporting our young scholars’ basic needs, such as school supplies, clothing, or food. Funds are available for students during the 2018-19 and 2019-20 school years, including the summer.

    Did you know that any school community member can submit a recommendation for these funds? As we head into summer break, these funds can help students whose families could use extra support with groceries or access to summer enrichment programs.

    If you would like to recommend or request Right Now Needs Now Funds support, please speak with your school principal, school counselor, or classroom teacher.
