The North Carolina Foundation for Public School Children awards annually a limited number of Parent Involvement Grants, up to $1,000, to low-wealth schools or school districts to increase, improve and enhance parent involvement in their children’s education. Priority is given to districts in Tier 1 counties.
Any public school administrator, teacher, or guidance counselor serving K-12 students may request such assistance for a school or school district interested in working with improving the skills and/or knowledge of parents.
A project evaluation, submitted through the Foundation website, is to be sent to the NCFPSC office as soon as possible after the completion of the project, but no later than June 1 of each year. No future grant applications will be considered unless all information has been received from previous grants.
Please be prepared to share photos and/or a video from your project to submit with your evaluation.
