Many schools use school or district prevention, school safety, character education, or discretionary funds to purchase our programs. Community funding sources may also be a good option:

  • County government discretionary funds
  • Governors’ special council funds
  • School enhancement dollars
  • Mayors’ offices—municipal government
  • Banking institutions, including credit unions
