The Spring 2020 California Credit Union Teacher Grant recipients include:

“Teachers today are facing unprecedented challenges in engaging with their students in new and different ways, and continue to go above and beyond in adapting to new learning environments,” said California Credit Union CEO Steve O’Connell. “We congratulate these inspiring teachers, and are proud to continue our commitment to supporting our education community through these grants. We hope this extra support will help educators as they create innovative and meaningful programs for their students, whether through online or in-classroom learning.”

The California Credit Union grants will help fund a wide variety of programs illustrating the creativity and commitment teachers bring to their classrooms and communities. Projects receiving grants include school-based gardens, STEMS robotic programs and STEAM labs, student podcast programs, special education reading programs, and modems to support distance learning for families in need, among many others.

Since the creation of the program in 2012, California Credit Union has awarded $115,000 in teacher grants to support classroom programs. Up to 20 grants are awarded bi-annually in the spring and fall. Any full-time classroom teacher in Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange, and Riverside County can apply for a grant for a program that has clearly defined learning objectives tied to students’ academic needs, displays creativity in education, and targets a significant number of students.
