We recognize that communities are resourced differently, which is why we raise philanthropic funding to support schools with the drive, passion, and leadership support to participate in JED High School regardless of their ability to pay.

Federal Funding

Every year, the federal government awards hundreds of millions of dollars to state educational agencies and K-12 institutions looking to improve student mental health. Many of these grants can be used to cover the cost of JED High School. Click here for an overview of current federal mental health grants for high schools.

United Educators

JED is excited to partner with United Educators, a reciprocal risk retention group serving K-12 schools, colleges, and universities, to increase support for student mental health. Eligible United Educators members can earn an insurance renewal premium credit by launching JED High School to protect student mental health and reduce substance misuse and suicide risk in high schools.
