Foundation Awards Teacher Grants

  • The Peoria Education Foundation enriches and supports educational excellence in the Peoria Unified School District by awarding grants to teachers and principals for projects outside the normal operating budget. As a result of grant funding, a truly fascinating spectrum of projects and programs has been implemented. These wonderful projects not only enhance the general learning environment, but also open the minds of young children to a broad palette of life's possibilities. The benefits of a grant project often go beyond the one-semester term of the actual award. New materials and equipment may support the regular curriculum for years to come.
