Grant Invite





Dear Community Member,

The Stevens Point Area Retired Teachers’ Association (SPARTA) is proud to announce that applications are now being accepted for our community grant program.

Our goal is to continue to support non-profit groups and organizations that directly benefit area children, seniors and families. Programs with limited resources supporting educational activities or cultural and enrichment events are invited to apply.

Because of tremendous community support for our used book sales, we are able to support your philanthropic work. Unfortunately, we did need to temporarily suspend and revise our program. Due to COVID, our current funds are not as plentiful as in the past. As a result, we respectfully ask that you consciously consider the size of your request knowing that we have less money to distribute.

Please use the enclosed application form or access it on our website,

Applications must be received by May 1, 2023 and be accurately completed to be considered. Our grant committee will review all eligible requests and make their decision by the end of May. Recipients will then be notified.

We thank you for all you do for our community. As educators we know and truly appreciate the work of all who collectively make our society, our towns, and our homes   richer and better places to live.
