Grants and Funding Opportunities


The Shield our Schools Initiative (TM)

The Shield Our Schools Initiative™ was developed by a small group of business owners, former military personnel, law enforcement, teachers, and concerned citizens in order to highlight effective ways to protect our children from violent acts that happen inside schools. As the number of school shootings in America continue to rise, the need for us as a community to do something about it continues to grow more vital.

"We’re on a mission to educate the public on solutions that are available NOW while offering schools these solutions at no cost to them. We’re on a mission to Shield Our Schools."
