Teacher Grants

Grants to support public school teachers

Teachers come up with good ideas all the time, but don’t have the resources to fund them or the time to pursue arduous funding requirements. That’s why we launched Teacher Resource Grants. These small but critically needed grants for teachers help to address inequalities in public education and build future generations of strong leaders.

The process for applying to one of our teacher grant programs is simple:

  • Write a 1-page request on school letterhead.

  • Fax your request to us.

  • We review your request within 48 hours.

  • We mail you a check!

– A Kindergarten teacher & PVF Excursion Grant recipient thanked us recently for funding her students’ field trip to their neighborhood farm. For many of her students, this was the first time they had visited a farm to learn about farm animals firsthand.

“I thank the foundation for making the process easy and accessible to teachers. The short application form was great! The check came within a week. The people I spoke with at the foundation were also friendly and helpful. I had tried to apply for grants in the past and was turned off by the difficult process and contact people who seemed reluctant to help. PVF has the complete recipe for a teacher-friendly grant –an easy application form, prompt mailing of check to the applicant, and easy reporting process. It is a grant well worth writing.”
