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.

FALL 2018

The fall 2018 grant round opens on Sept. 12 and closes on Oct. 12. Beginning in the 2018-19 school year, 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. For the Fall 2018 grant round, the presentation/Q&A will occur at the Oct. 24 Foundation meeting, which is held at the District Office at 6:30 p.m. 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.
