    Nancy F. Beck Memorial Fund

    Call for Grant Applications


    The Nancy F. Beck Memorial Fund was established by her family in 1997 to continue Nancy’s dedicated service to children in the Brighton School District. Nancy was a dedicated wife, mother and member of the Brighton PTSA. For fifteen years, she was a tireless volunteer on behalf of children in the Brighton schools. The goal of the Nancy F. Beck Memorial Fund is to carry on Nancy’s good work by awarding annual grants for long-term, child-oriented, hands-on programs and equipment that benefit the greatest number of children. Teachers, administrators and parents may apply for these grants. The Brighton Central PTSA administers this fund.

    • Complete the form online and then print the form and ask the building principal to sign it.
    • Also, complete a district requisition form that itemizes necessary supplies/materials. Please check with the District business office to ensure that the vendor you select has been previously approved.

    • In place of a requisition form, you may choose to submit a written quote from the vendor. Sometimes this can result in a discounted price. Please check that your chosen vendor has been previously approved.

    • Please attach any additional material that might help the committee.

    • Either mail to PTSA Vice-President Alissa Chilson (address on application), or send by inter-school mail to Alissa Chilson PTSA at Central Administration Office. If you use inter-school mail, please also email Alissa to notify her. Applications may also be given to PTSA building co-chairs or building principals who will forward them to the PTSA.

    The selection process: The PTSA Nancy F. Beck Memorial Fund Committee (see below) reviews all grant applications. The committee considers how many children will benefit from the grant, how long the grant will impact students, and how the grant would enrich the school program in ways not covered by the school budget. There is no requirement concerning the number of grants awarded each year, or in which schools the grants are awarded. Each school will not necessarily receive a grant each year.
