Fall 2019 Equity & Innovation Grants for Teachers

The FPPS Fall Equity and Innovation Grants Program is designed to support teacher-led classroom innovations which enhance learning experiences for students in Portland Public Schools in response to the Portland Promise. The program recognizes, rewards and supports teachers’ work to inspire students and improve learning outcomes. It responds directly to the Foundation’s goals to support educational enrichment, classroom innovation and community engagement by empowering teachers to invest in innovations they believe will have meaningful impact and reach, and experiences that involve expert content including field trips, guest speakers and professional resources to amplify educational engagement and attainment.

Please see lists of Past Awards, from 2010 to 2019, below. 

Fall 2019 Culture Club Grants for Teachers

Fall 2019 Culture Club Grants will make remaining restricted gift funds available to school communities in order to continue support for programming with Portland Stage, Portland Ovations, Portland Symphony Orchestra and the Portland Museum of Art during the 2019-2020 school year. (Note: Generous philanthropic funding from an anonymous donor which created Culture Club-Portland has discontinued. A Task Force is being established to address options and opportunities to retain the PPS partnership with Portland professional arts programming for students.)
