MCPE Educator Seed Money GrantGiving Back to K-12 Educators

As a youth-focused and child-friendly website we wanted to give something back to an invaluable part of every community: those who educate our youth. With funding continually being cut back many educators resort to spending their own personal money to adequately provide their students with basic materials necessary for learning. Homeschoolers are faced with that same challenge. With that in mind we are proud to announce a financial gift program specifically for K-12 teachers and homeschoolers, the Educator Seed Money Grant.

Our Goal

To give back to the education community by providing educators (teachers and homeschoolers) a financial gift to aid in purchasing classroom supplies.

Wait – What are Minecraft PE Seeds anyway? In the game Minecraft: Pocket Edition players can enter a string of characters when creating a new world. Those characters are used to generate a unique world to explore. Players can share seeds between one another, allowing the creation of the same world. If you’re curious, take a look at our collection of Minecraft PE Seeds. We provide a kid-friendly environment where players can get seeds as well as helpful gameplay tips.

The Annual Gifts: Two $500 Gifts each Fall
