Who: Can apply for these mini grants? You! The grants are open to any teaching staff member, social worker and psychologist at any of our three elementary schools or the middle school.
What: Every year, the PTA sets aside funds to fill grants for things you need to help our children. Some recent grants we have funded include: iPads, PE equipment, books, assemblies, subscriptions to educational sites for teachers, sensory paths, flexible seating, animal adoptions, speech materials and more!
Where: Please email your completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject line “Mini-grant.” Applications were emailed by your building principal and are also available to download from this website. (Please scroll down.) Please note you must have principal approval for all grant applications.
When: The submission period for the 2020-21 school year is OPEN. The hard submission deadline is Friday, Jan. 15, 2021. Applicants should expect to hear back from the PTA via email 2 weeks after the deadline.
Why: We know how hard you all work to support our children and help them learn and grow. We also know unfortunately there is never enough money to do all that you would like. This is one small way we can help.
This year, we have $15,000 to grant for grades Pre-K – 5 and $3,000 to grant for grades 6 – 8. Help us give every last dollar away by applying for a mini-grant. If you have any questions, please contact PTA President Christina Grillo. *Please note any grant approved by PTA last year for 2019-20 mini-grant funds but not spent due to the covid-19 pandemic school closure needs to please be resubmitted to PTA this year to be considered alongside the other 2020-21 applications for this year’s mini-grant budget. This is because PTA’s fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, and PTA wants to ensure we are spending funds where they are currently most needed.
Here are this year’s applications:
