Forsythe PTSO Grants are awarded by the PTSO to staff, parents, and students who seek funding for new enrichment activities, programs, materials, or projects that benefit the Forsythe community. Grant requests are reviewed and approved by the PTSO grant committee, comprised of teachers and parents.  Interest in participating should be directed to ForsythePTSO@gmail.com.  The following are general guidelines for the 2019-2020 grant program:


  • Forsythe Vikings Grant Request

    • Apply by completing the online Grant Request Form.


  • Deadlines and Funds available

    • Grants are reviewed monthly; however there are limited funds available so we encourage applicants to submit grants early, especially when requests are over $500.

    • Does it support the school mission or school current year goals?
