Build-A-Bear Workshop Giving Programs Accepting Grant Appli-
cations for 2009

Deadline: Various

Build-A-Bear Workshop, Inc. ( http://www.buildabear.com/ ) is accepting grant applications as part of its annual giving pro- gram. In the company's twelve-year history it has donated over $20 million to organizations that support families, children, animals, and the environment, including the donation of thousands of stuffed animals to comfort children in need.

Grant applications can be submitted through the Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation ( http://www.buildabear.com/aboutus/community/grants ) and the Build-A-Bear Workshop Foundation ( http://www.buildabear.com/aboutUs/community/BabwFoundation.aspx ).

The Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation supports charities in the United States and Canada through the following special grant programs:

Children's Health & Wellness: Champ-A Champion Fur Kids grants provide direct support for children in the areas of health and wellness. Grantees include childhood disease research founda- tions, child safety organizations, and organizations that serve children with special needs. Grant request deadlines are at the end of April, July, and October.

Domestic Pets: Bearemy's Kennel Pals grants provide direct sup- port for domestic pet programs, including animal welfare organi- zations, pet rescue and rehabilitation organizations, and thera- peutic and humane education pet programs. Grant cycle deadlines are quarterly at the end of the months of March, June, September, and December.

Literacy and Education: Grants provide support for children in literacy and education programs such as summer reading programs, early childhood education programs, and literacy programs for children with special needs. Grant request deadlines are at the end of February, May, August, and November.

In addition, organizations seeking unrestricted support for chil- dren, families, and animals or for wild animals and the environ- ment are encouraged to apply for grants through the Build-A-Bear Workshop Foundation, a nonprofit organization. The foundation reviews grant applications on a rolling basis. Grants range be- tween $1,000 and $10,000 each, with an average award amount of $2,500.
