PTSA Club Assistance and Teacher Grants
Deadline for Grant Applications is October 5, 2016
The DHS PTSA grant program funds activities that will enhance the Decatur High School community. Grants can be requested for DHS clubs, student- or teacher-led activities, or any other projects that will enhance the DHS community.
All grants are made possible by the DHS Annual Fund, which is supported 100% by donations from DHS families and others in the DHS community. Our goal over the coming years is to establish an Annual Fund strong enough to fully fund every major need and reduce the stress/time/distraction of teachers/staff/parents being involved in smaller fundraising efforts that detract from their passion and mission.
Individual grants will be separated into two categories:
- “Mini-Grants”, which have a maximum of $800. The applications for these grants will be reviewed and approved by the DHS PTSA Grant Committee.
- “Big Ticket” grants are for anything $801-$5,000. These newly implemented larger grant applications will be reviewed and vetted by the Grant Committee, and if recommended, submitted to the PTSA Board for approval.
Prior Year Grants: In the past two years, PTSA grants have contributed to new Chorus robes, STEM equipment and initiatives, Price of Poverty Symposium, training for a peer-to-peer tutoring program, Academic Bowl, Future Business Leaders of America, Pollinator Garden, Partnership with Global Village School, Partnerships for Success Diving Team, and Robotics Team.
Application Process: Interested applicants must submit a grant application detailing the impact, value, need, and plan for implementation of the project to the Grant Committee. Grant requests can be initiated by students or faculty. Next grant deadline is October 5, 2016. The proposals will be reviewed by the Grant Committee and decisions regarding awards will be made as quickly as possible.
