40+ Grants to Fund Technology for Your School

Rise Vision is the most affordable way for schools to manage their digital signage effortlessly. Most schools like the software so much, they can’t wait to get the funding to purchase more displays and media players, so they have an entire school network of digital signage. To help you get more displays quicker, we have compiled a list of 40 technology grants that you can use to purchase the hardware you need for digital signage at your school.
