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 and guidance to the PPS educational community for competitive applications to federal, state, foundation, and corporate entities. 

    THINKING OF APPLYING FOR A GRANT?
    First, fill out this Grant Application Vetting Form. Your form responses will be automatically sent to Strategic Partnerships, Budget & Grant Accounting, and System Planning & Performance.

    Use this form as a tool to discuss the potential application with your supervisor. If the grant application you wish to pursue would have a budget greater than $25,000, it will need an executive sponsor at the Chief level. Securing Chief level support is the responsibility of the Department Director or ASD. 

    Once you submit this form Strategic Partnerships will contact you to determine next steps. Please direct questions to Tullan Spitz, Senior Manager of Stewardship & Donor Relations, tspitz@pps.net.

    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.
