Grant Seekers



Would you like a PVSD Foundation grant to help foster innovation in your classroom? Please submit an application for consideration. The Foundation traditionally funds two rounds of grants per year – one in the fall, and one in the spring. Keep an eye on this section of our website for deadlines.

Spring 2020

The spring 2020 grant round opened in February and was scheduled to close March 16. Due to the state-mandated closure of Pennsylvania schools, the Foundation will be revising its grant round deadlines and procedures. Stay tuned for additional information as plans develop. The Foundation may ask grant applicants to attend a Foundation meeting to give a short presentation (3-5 minutes) and to answer questions that Foundation Board members might have about the application. Please be aware that the Foundation recently updated its procedures and rubric for the grant process. Please review this document (click here) so you can be sure that your application meets the criteria outlined in the rubric.
