Grant Seekers

Information for 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 has closed. Please check back for dates regarding the fall 2020 grant round.

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.

Applications should include the following criteria:

  • How the proposed project enriches or enhances the student experience
  • An explanation of the potential for significant impact on participating students
  • A timeline and plan for measuring project’s outcomes and impact
  • A plan for sharing feedback with the Foundation following the implementation of his/her project

Anyone applying for a grant may be asked to give a short presentation (3-5 minutes) and to answer questions that Foundation Board members may have about the application. These presentations typically occur in the fall and spring during regularly scheduled Foundation Board meetings. You will be notified of your time slot and the meeting date in advance.
