Staff Grants

2020 – 2021 Gunn Titan Staff Grants
New Deadline: Extended to Friday, October 2

The Gunn PTSA announces the Staff Grants process for the 2020–21 year with $20,000 waiting to be awarded this fall!  Please read these guidelines to understand the process and criteria.  You are encouraged to apply.

Goals of the PTSA Staff Grant 

PTSA has financial resources to share with all Gunn teachers and staff to promote innovative teaching methods. This seems especially poignant this year. Grants will be considered for classroom or school-wide programs that teach or support students in creative and engaging ways.

Grants are available up to $2,000 (larger amounts may be considered). Grant amounts must include tax and shipping, and a cost estimate for each item to be purchased as part of the grant proposal. Funds must be spent by May 28, 2021.

Requests for hardware/software can be considered if first approved by the Gunn Tech Supervisor.  The PTSA cannot commit funds for post-purchase multi-year support.

How to Apply

The Application is open until October 2nd, 2020.
Before filling out the online application, please ensure the following: 

  • Your departmental IS has reviewed and approved your grant proposal (and Gunn Tech approved hardware or software requests)
  • Your amount includes tax and shipping, and will be spent by May 28, 2021
  • Now, go ahead and complete the Gunn PTSA Staff Grant online application.

The Gunn PTSA Budget Committee (which includes Gunn’s Principal) reviews all grant requests after the application window closes on October 2nd. All grant applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision soon after.

Ordering and Payment Process

If your application is approved, teachers/staff shall work with Hindi Hipp (Gunn’s Budget Secretary) for all orders, shipments, and payments related to the grant.
