Grants & Scholarships

Purpose of the Grants
The Peralta District PTA grant program is designed to build and grow our PTAs, in areas of
leadership, membership, programs and Running-your-PTA. Need-based PTAs will get priority.
The total amount allocated for these grants is available in our budget document. The grants are not meant to cover organizational (PTA administration) costs.

During this term, 2022-23, we are able to allocate sizable amount towards the grant program and we hope that especially the PTAs that truly need the financial support will avail themselves of this opportunity.

Please apply for these grants proactively and reach out us for assistance with ideas on programs
and tools for running your PTA.

Questions? Please contact grants.pdpta@gmail.com.

Who can apply?
Any (in-council or out-of-council) PTA unit Alameda County that:

  1. is up-to-date with required paperwork and is “in good standing”;
  2. has met all requirements specified in the bylaws:
  • providing contact information for the current officers,
  • remitting per capita for all members and insurance premium by the established deadlines,
  • submitting financial year end reports, budgets and audits, as well as copies of all tax filings.

Complete (online grant application + association-approved budget along with meeting minutes submitted to grants.pdpta@gmail.com) applications are reviewed/approved at monthly Peralta District Board Meetings. In other words, applications are not collected and reviewed all at once. Therefore, the earlier you apply, the more likely funds will still be available.

Applying PTA will be notified by email after review and approval by Peralta District PTA. Notification will include details about the grant amount disbursement.

How to apply?
Applications will be accepted via Google form specific for each grant (scroll down to types of Peralta District PTA Grants currently being offered). Association-approved budget along with the meeting minutes will need to be submitted to complete grant application. For help please contact grants.pdpta@gmail.com
