Proposals and Grants

Issaquah Valley PTA funding criteria:

  • Relevance to the curriculum, school and/or district goals
  • Benefit to students or program/department
  • Number of students and/or grades benefited
  • Length of program: short term or long term (1 year max)
  • Demonstrated need – not a school or district responsibility
  • Amount requested
  • Funds available

All teachers, staff, parents and students are eligible to submit a grant request.

Each grant must be approved by the Issaquah Valley PTA Grant Committee. The grant amount available for the year must be approved by Issaquah Valley PTA Members at a General PTA Meeting.

Some grants will not be approved. The reasons for non-approval of a grant may include amount of grant request, supplanting of district or school responsibility, and overlap with other PTA programs. Rejected grants can be resubmitted if rewritten.

The Grants Committee will communicate decision to applicant and post all awarded grants on ivepta.org.

Purchasing, reimbursement, failure to use award

The list of approved grants will be given to the PTA Treasurers and they will pay all approved grant expenses.

If a grant is not used within 3 months or June 1, whichever comes first, then the grant awarded reverts back to the use of the PTA. Prior approval to extend these deadlines is available and should be indicated on grant application.
