Awards are granted directly to DPSCD schools, departments, offices and nonprofit organizations that currently provide programs supporting DPSCD students and schools. All documents must be submitted to the DPS Foundation by email for consideration at grants@dpsfdn.org. To be considered for a grant from the DPS Foundation, an applicant must comply with the following grant application procedure, which involves two steps.[/cs_text][cs_text class=”grantlist”]

STEP ONE | Eligibility

Applicants must come from one of the following:

STEP TWO | Grant Application

Cycle Grants: The applicant must complete and submit a proposal to the DPS Foundation on or before the cycle deadline using the appropriate Grant Proposal Application Form. If we award a grant to the applicant, the applicant shall be required to enter into a grant agreement with the DPS Foundation accepting all terms and conditions, including reporting requirements. The Grant Proposal Application and related documents should be submitted to the DPS Foundation by email as an attachment to grants@dpsfdn.org. In the subject line of the email please write DPSF Grant Application– Cycle 1, 2 or 3 (please use corresponding cycle). We will not consider a Grant Proposal Application that is not submitted by email. Applicants should note the following important information:

  1. We give priority to grant applications for programs in the following areas:
    • Literacy and Early Childhood Education
    • STEAM (Science, Technology, Arts, Engineering, and Math)
    • Career Pathways
    • Beyond the Classroom
    • Basic Needs
  2. Typically our mini-grant awards range from $500 – $5,000. Cycle Grant Proposal Form
    Emergency Grants: Emergency grants are accepted only from DPSCD schools and staff. We entertain Emergency grants based upon a critical need arising outside a normal cycle application period. Emergency Grant Proposal Form
