Goals of the PTSA Staff Grant

  • PTSA financial resources are shared with Gunn teachers and staff to promote innovative teaching methods and programs. Grants are considered for classroom or school-wide programs that teach or support students in creative and engaging ways.
  • Grants are available up to $2,000 per applicant (larger amounts may be considered). Grant amounts must include tax and shipping, and a cost estimate for items to be purchased as part of the grant. Funds must be spent by May 30, 2024.

How to Apply

Before filling out the online application please do the following: 

  • Have the departmental IS review and approve the grant proposal (and Gunn Tech approved hardware or software requests)
