“California Credit Union was founded to support the education community, and our grant program is one way we’re working to help teachers bring exciting programs into their classrooms,” said CEO Steve O’Connell. “All of these projects are truly inspiring, and we congratulate each of these educators as they work to spark a new passion for learning in their students and make a difference in our shared communities.”

The CCU 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 developing water filtration and testing systems, community sustainability programs, school-based gardens and green spaces, communication technologies and peer-based socialization for special education students, and robotics programs, among many others.

Since the creation of the program in 2012, CCU has awarded $105,000 in teacher grants to benefit students throughout Los Angeles and San Diego. Up to 20 grants are awarded bi-annually in the spring and fall.

Any full-time classroom teacher in Los Angeles and San Diego 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.
