Our Grants


The Yakima County School Retirees’ Association awards $10,000.00 per year to active teachers who are members of our organization.

An individual may request up to a maximum of $500.00. The applicants submit a written proposal on how the money will be used to benefit students. These grants are to be used for books, materials or activities not supplied by the school district. Applications are mailed in the fall with the selections made by a committee in November. It is our goal to deliver the grants to the recipients before winter break. The winners attend a May potluck to share results of the grant. This is a highlight for those of us who are retired.
