Brite Star Library and School Grants

Brite Star World Education in cooperation with the Goett Foundation is pleased to offer grants to libraries and schools.

 

With the pressure on educators to cover the basic skills, there is precious little time to focus on living skills for elementary age children. The world of Brite Star was created to help educators all over the world meet this need. We believe this much overlooked area is critically important to the growth and development of the child. For that reason we have assembled books, that for the most part, focus on these living skills.

We want to make these resources available to your school at no charge—not even shipping.

We offer three different grants. Take a look and see which is most appropriate for your school. Then simply fill out the form at the bottom of the page, attach a letter on school stationery and a picture of your school. Upon acceptance we will ship your gift.
