Supplies and Funds for Classroom projects and educational activities for students

The Delaware Valley Fairness Project is partnering with your school to support the education of your students. Through our Education Assistance Program, teachers and other staff members at the school may obtain supplies and funding for projects and activities both inside and outside the classroom.


  • Have a project or activity you believe would have a positive impact on the education of your students?
  • don’t want to go back to your friends and family to ask them to contribute to another of your projects?
  • prefer not to wait a month or two or three to get the funds and supplies you need?

The Delaware valley Fairness Project’s education assistance program provides up to $500 for projects.  at times we provide more than $500 depending on the nature of the project and the availability of funds.  supplies or funds for approved projects usually are provided within two weeks of receipt of an online application.
