Parents Appreciating Teachers & Staff (PATS)
It’s that time of year to honor the extraordinary teachers, principals, and other school staff in your family’s life with a Parents Appreciating Teachers and Staff (PATS) donation. Each honoree will receive your family’s personal message of gratitude along with recognition of a PATS donation being made in their honor. Donations to IPSF’s PATS program go directly back to teachers in classrooms, benefiting thousands of students each year through the Innovative Grants Program.
