NFC PTA MINI-GRANTS

STEM/Garden/Recycling/SEL Mini-Grant Applications open for 2020!

Over the past few years, NFC PTA has recognized the growing importance of promoting environmental stewardship in our community. Our mini-grant program provides financial support to projects that demonstrate Environmental Education practices, methods, and techniques while supporting the Georgia Curriculum. Last year we added STEM mini-grants to the mix and this year we are adding a SEL mini-grant as well.

Gardening Mini-Grants: A gardening mini-grants will be awarded to North Fulton County schools that promote environmental stewardship by letting the students become active participants in the learning process. Applicants should be schools that have an already existing gardening program and need support to continue using the garden to integrate lessons into their educational program.

Recycling Mini-Grant: This year we are offering a mini-grant for recycling programs. We believe that a school-recycling program is a hands-on, interdisciplinary lesson that educates students about the environment, personal responsibility, community action, and solid waste management. Therefore we would like to help relieve some of the cost of your program. Applicants should be schools that are planning to have a sustainable and successful recycling program.

STEM Mini-Grant: This year we are offering a STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) Mini-Grants.  We would like to support individual K-12 teachers or PTA members with the resources for original innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) projects. Funding should be used to purchase supplies relevant to the project.

New this year! SEL Mini-Grant: We would like to support individual K-12 teachers or PTA members with the resources for initiating or improving Social Emotional Learning programs.  Funding should be used to purchase supplies or services to promote parent-school-community partnerships that increase schools’ access to guidance, resources and tools for social emotional learning.

We invite all schools in good standing (up to date with membership reporting dues etc.) to apply.
