Phila. Public School Giving Circle Round of Funding, Apply by Dec 18

Posted by Philadelphia Public School Giving Circle on December 17, 2019

We are pleased to announce the 2019/20 grant cycle of the Philadelphia Public School Giving Circle (PPSGC). The PPSGC is a Donor-Advised Fund dedicated solely to providing small, timely grants to support traditional neighborhood public elementary schools in disadvantaged communities. The Circle is governed cooperatively by the group of founding and additional Donors, who make funding decisions on a rolling basis approximately once or twice per year. The PPSCG is designed as a nimble, small-grant fund to cover basic needs (including enrichment activities outside of school) in those schools in which such are hard or impossible to cover by other means.

The typical grants are $250 up to $500 maximum. The intended grant recipient is a teacher, principal, leader of a Home & School or Friends group, or other supporter of a local public elementary school.

The Deadline for Applications will be Midnight, December 18. Decisions, based upon the merits of the proposals, the fit with our Mission and the availability of funding, will be made and announced in less than 30 days, in early January.

The PPSGC is supported by The Philadelphia Foundation and the Philadelphia Crosstown Coalition ( If you would like to become a Supporter and Voting Donor ($250 minimum) you can donate securely to the Fund at The Philadelphia Foundation ( All contributions to the fund are tax deductible to the full extent permitted by law.
