school PETTY CASH Assistance
DVFP Petty Cash Funds
Delaware Valley Fairness Project assists schools by providing $500 petty cash funds that may be used by the school to assist families of students in times of small emergency needs. Schools have used these funds to pay for transportation to a crisis center or hospital; to replace eyeglasses for a student; to pay small enrollment fees (e.g., $10-20) for worthwhile after-school activities; to enable a family to purchase up to $50 worth of food to get through a day or two. We do replenish the fund if we find it is being used in a worthwhile manner.
Who May Apply
Only the Principal of a southeastern PA or southern NJ school may apply for a petty cash fund.
Applications may be submitted each school year between October 1 and March 31 but are funded only until all funds are disbursed.
