For Teachers

Delaware Valley Fairness Project assists teachers and schools by providing resources and supplies for creative learning projects and for extra-curricular and co-curricular programs that stimulate creativity, broaden skills, build character, or allow for innovative learning experiences.  Teachers and staff in any pre-K – 12 school in southeastern Pennsylvania or southern New Jersey are eligible to apply.   Priority is given to projects, programs and activities benefiting disadvantaged youth.

Applications may be submitted each fall term between September 1 and Thanksgiving, and each spring term between January 15 and April 30.   Beginning in 2018, decisions on applications are made once per month.  Preference is given to applicants who have not received an award during the current school-year.

PLEASE NOTE:   AS A RESULT OF THE HIGH VOLUME OF APPLICATIONS RECEIVED THIS SCHOOL-YEAR, WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING NEW APPLICATIONS PRIOR TO SEPTEMBER 1, 2018.  THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.
