Ezra Jack Keats Mini-Grants (Applications Suspended Until Fall 2021 due to Covid-19)

Source: Ezra Jack Keats Foundation

Description: Ezra Jack Keats (1916-1983) was a pioneer in American children’s literature. He based the lives of his multiracial characters on his childhood but added loving parents, friends and pets. He wanted no child to be an outsider. “If we could see each other exactly as the other is,” he wrote, “this would be a different world.”

The Foundation accepts applications from public schools and public libraries anywhere in the United States and its territories to its mini-grants program, which supports projects that foster creative expression, collaboration, and interaction with a diverse community. Grants are for up to $500.
