 North Island Credit Union Looking to Fund Innovative San Diego Classroom Projects

​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 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.
