Teacher Emergency Grants

About the Grant

In keeping with MPSF’s mission to enhance, expand, and enrich students’ educational experiences through private donations, applicants must demonstrate that their need falls within this context. Receipt of your application will be acknowledged via email. Applicants are notified of the Foundation's decision no later than the day of the next monthly Moore Public Schools Foundation Board Meeting. Regarding requests requiring quicker turnaround, every reasonable effort will be made to review the request and provide a response prior to the date on which the funds are needed. Grant checks are mailed to awardees the business day following approval. Rejected applicants may not reapply for the same proposal or request.



Applicants must be employed by the Moore Public Schools District. Successful applicants to the Emergency Grants program may not reapply for two years from the date of their past award.
