The PIAAA Foundation accepts grant requests from staff or students of Pine Island School District #255 that enhance the academics, arts and/or athletic experience of Pine Island students. We seek to fund projects that are under or unfunded through the normal operation of the District and help to set our District above others in our region. We encourage staff and students to be innovative and creative with their proposals. Funding for normal, routine projects and programs are discouraged. The PI AAA Foundation wants to supplement not supplant District funding. Applicants are encouraged to discuss their projects in advance with a member of the Board of Directors. While not required matching funds are encouraged.
