Grant Development

  • Welcome!

    Grant Development for PPS lives within the Strategic Partnerships Department, which serves as a bridge between PPS and the philanthropic and business community, including governmental grant-making agencies. This team collaborates with stakeholders district-wide to secure resources for programs, schools, teachers, and students. We provide leadership, guidance, writing and/or editing assistance, and support to the PPS educational community for competitive applications to federal, state, foundation, and corporate entities. 

    We are always researching grant opportunities and looking for the best ways to share them throughout the district. We welcome your input. Below is a list of Grant Opportunities for PPS Schools and Teachers. Please visit again for quarterly updates.

    Looking for a grant for a particular project? Please send us an email! If you're considering applying for a grant that will impact multiple sites or is district wide, please contact Tullan Spitz (tspitz@pps.net). For school-based grants, contact Robyn Faraone (rfaraone@pps.net).
