At both the PPS Foundation and Community Foundation of Central Illinois (CFCI), we support PPS teachers and staff in their efforts to involve and engage students in the classroom. We understand that this year will look very different compared to other years, but please know that we want to help you fund your project ideas to enrich the classroom experience for your students.
With that in mind, we are offering two types of grants this year: a traditional Classroom Grant and a STEM Grant. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, we will not be offering any of our Field Experience grants or the Classroom Innovation grant. We are hopeful that we will be able to bring those back next school year.
While most classroom grant programs award initiatives submitted by just teachers, the PPS Foundation's selection committee also considers requests from other personnel (such as counselors, home school facilitators, etc).
Read on to find out more about the PPS Foundation and CFCI's combined Classroom Grant program and which grant opportunity best fits your project idea.
