Foundation for Portland Public Schools investments in PPS come in many forms. For example, the Foundation administers a variety of grant programming available to PPS Teachers.

Current Grant Programming:

During the Fall 2019, two opportunities for grants are available: Teacher Equity and Innovation Grants (formerly called “Teacher Grants”), and Culture Club Grants.

These two grant opportunities will work from the same application.

  • Applicants will choose whether they seek funds to support engagement with arts programming through Portland Stage, Portland Ovations, Portland Symphony Orchestra, or the Portland Museum of Art.
  • Or, if they seek funds in support of an Equity & Innovation Grant application that supports teacher-led enhancements, innovation, projects and enrichment with a tie-in to Portland Promise Goals.
