Grants for Education

Funding materials, projects, and experiences to support Orange High School Students

The Grants for Education Program supports student development by funding materials, projects, and experiences that extend beyond those provided by Orange Public Schools.

The committee is comprised of parent volunteers who meet each grant review period to solicit grant applications, determine approval, and distribute funds to grant recipients.

The purpose of the Orange High School PTA is to support the welfare of the students and staff of Orange High School.  Our motto is: “Working To Make Every Child's Potential A Reality”. All grants should support one or more of the PTA’s goals of giving students confidence to succeed, encouraging them to be creative, or emphasizing the importance of character.

FUNDING AND EVALUATION PERIODS

Thanks to the generous support of the Orange High School  PTA community, the Grants for Education program has been included in the budget  for the 2022-23 school year.

Application deadlines for this year’s review periods is: December 2, 2022
