Grants of up to $5,000 to California principals with teams of educators in TK-12 public, charter, and nonprofit private schools in eligible areas for creative educational programs. Funding will be awarded to programs in the areas of technology access and social-emotional learning. The PEF School Grant Program funds curriculum projects that support, supplement, and enrich the student experience. Proposals must benefit students in the Petaluma area.

This coming academic year, PEF is working with schools to adapt its traditional grant program, creating a dedicated funding focus to support the immediate challenges facing school communities. PEF convened its superintendents and principals to clearly understand the individual school priorities. All shared their immediate need for Social-Emotional Learning programs and Technology Access.

Grant proposals must qualify in at least one of the Focus Areas listed below:

  • SEL - Social and Emotional Learning
  • TECH - Devices and/or access for parity within a school

The PEF School Grant Program funds projects that supplement, support, and enrich the student experience.

Project expenses may include materials and accompanying costs or resources, as well as necessary costs or contingencies such as site or classroom preparation or modifications, installation or configuration expenses, technical and maintenance support, training and staff support services, renewable or replacement equipment, or updates.
