Through the efforts of our board members and volunteers, PTEF raises funds to benefit our schools through direct solicitation of community members, corporate sponsorships, and events such as our annual Soiree.
We work with teachers who prepare rigorous grant requests for classroom projects they believe will benefit their students. PTEF’s grant committee then undertakes a thorough evaluation of the proposed projects, prioritizing and funding as many qualified projects as resources allow. PTEF reviews legacy grants, new grants and micro grants. At the end of each school year, grant recipients are required to prepare detailed evaluations of their funded projects with an emphasis on objective criteria if possible.
Visit here often to see the impact of our grants throughout the school year.
