North Island Credit Union (North Island) is inviting all San Diego area teachers who
have a great class project idea to apply for a credit union grant through its bi‐annual Teacher Grant Program.
The program is open to any full‐time classroom teacher in San Diego County who is looking to fund an innovative
classroom learning opportunity. The project should have clearly defined learning objectives tied to students’ academic
needs, display creativity, and benefit a significant number of students. Ten grants of $500 each will be awarded to
San Diego area teachers in April in the spring program.
“We are committed to serving the education community, and can’t think of a better way to honor that commitment
than helping teachers light up their classrooms with an innovative learning opportunity for their students,” said
California Credit Union President/CEO Steve O’Connell. “We hope this program will make it a little easier for educators
to make a difference in the lives of our students, and encourage any teacher who has an exciting project idea to take just
a few minutes to apply for one of our grants.”
Interested teachers can find more information and apply online at northisland.ccu.com/teachergrant. The application
deadline is April 6, 2018.
Since the creation of the program in 2012, California Credit Union has awarded $65,000 in teacher grants to benefit
students across San Diego and Los Angeles Counties. The bi‐annual program offers up to 20 grants in the spring and fall
to teachers in San Diego and Los Angeles.
