The Peoria Public Schools Foundation (PPSF) and The Yeomans Fund of the Community Foundation of Central Illinois (CFCI) are pleased to offer classroom grants to Peoria Public Schools teachers.
In 2013, PPS Foundation and CFCI have joined together to offer Classroom Grants through one simple application process.
Peoria Public Schools Classroom Grants are available to any Peoria Public Schools District teacher interested in additional projects to enrich the classroom experience. It is a competitive grant process that aligns with Peoria Public Schools strategic goals and the school improvement plan. Awards will be made in amounts of $1,000 or less.
While most grants address classroom initiatives from teachers, the selection committee will consider requests from other personnel (counselors, home school facilitators, etc.)
Since 1998, PPSF has provided over $215,000 to classrooms and teachers throughout District 150. Its classroom grants program is designed to benefit students by supporting teachers, allowing professional educators to implement their most innovative ideas.
In 1998, Murray and Rena Yeomans created The Yeomans Fund, an endowed fund with an emphasis on assisting the Peoria Public Schools system. Each year, a portion of The Yeomans Fund’s distributions are used to fund Peoria Public Schools District 150 Classroom grants. Since 2006, over $120,000 has been awarded to support PPS grant initiatives.
Online applications due by midnight on October 3rd.
Please note, if the deadline falls on a weekend or holiday, applications will be accepted the next business day by midnight.
