The Credit Union awards these grants annually to support creative and experiential educational projects or programs in the area’s school districts. Special consideration is given to innovative projects that strengthen the relationship between our schools and the community at large, as well as to projects that support student excellence. All applications are judged on the following criteria: Educational Focus, Promotion of Skills/Excellence, Creativity/Innovation, Community Connection, and Goal Clarity/Attainability.
‘We understand the monumental task at hand for our local Teachers, Administration, and Staff in meeting learning objectives and keeping everyone safe during this school year. We are pleased to offer teacher grants that enhance the overall educational experience especially during this very challenging time’, stated Steve White, WCCU President and CEO. ‘We feel this is a way to show our support and appreciation for their creativity and ongoing determination to help children succeed.’
Grant applications are available through the WCCU website, www.westerlyccu.com/teacher-grant. Completed applications must be submitted to WCCU no later than October 31, 2021. Monies will be awarded in early December.
