Grants Helping Hand Grant

PTEF is pleased to again offer our Helping Hand Grants for the 2021-2022 school year! In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the foundation seeks to lend a helping hand to our amazing Perry Township educators as they bravely navigate an environment that is changing by the minute.

The Helping Hand Grants will provide up to $200 to educators for the materials and supplies they need to teach creatively and innovatively, as current circumstances require. We will accept applications on a monthly basis, beginning in October 2021 and ending in May 2022 with due dates at 11:59pm on the first* of each month. Awardees will be notified within 10 days and grants will be immediately distributed (details to be shared with all awardees). Receipts must be returned electronically ( within 30 days of receiving the grant. Recipients who fail to submit receipts will be ineligible to apply for a grant the following semester. Educators may not receive more than one grant per semester. Applicants must apply online through the form below and must have permission from the school principal to apply.

The Helping Hand Grant program will replace our traditional Creative & Innovative Educator Grants (both $1,500 Infusion Grants and $5,000 Legacy Grants) for the Fall semester of the 2021-2022 school year. PTEF will provide further details if/when determinations are made about our Legacy and Infusion grants for the Spring semester.

*Note: If the first of the month falls on a weekend, applicants will have until 11:59pm on the following Monday to submit the application.
