• GRANTS

    Each year, the NA Foundation grants up to $50,000 to teachers for projects that make a broad, positive impact across our schools and classrooms. There are two submission periods, one in the fall and one in the spring. NA staff members will be notified via email when a new application period has opened.

     The spring 2024 grant cycle will open from February 26 to March 18, 2024. To apply, CLICK HERE. Questions? Contact the North Allegheny Foundation at nafoundation@northallegheny.org
