Local Teachers Receive Almost $47,000 in Classroom Cash Grants from MSGCU
Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union (MSGCU) has announced its 63 Classroom Cash Grant recipients for 2017. These educators are from local Michigan elementary, middle and high schools. The grants, worth up to $750 each, help with the implementation of innovative projects and learning experiences in the classrooms. Projects include flexible seating and sensory resources that encourage collaborative exchanges, interactive reading systems and technology enhancements and many others that foster students’ exploration, independent thinking and problem solving. In total, MSGCU is awarding $46,686 to 41 schools from across the Metro Detroit area.
With a heritage rooted in education, MSGCU is committed to supporting the creative and entrepreneurial spirit of the teaching community. Over the past 11 years, the Classroom Cash Grant program has awarded hundreds of educators with extra funding for unique projects that enhance their academic environment.
“Students represent our future and contributing to their growth and learning is part of our mission at MSGCU in support of the community,” said president and CEO Peter Gates. “We are humbled by the impact teachers have as a result of this program because of the important role they play in the education and development of our youth.”
Classroom Cash Grant winners are chosen based on total votes cast by fellow students, parents, colleagues, family and friends. This year more than 280,000 votes were received during a two-week online voting period.
MSGCU’s Classroom Cash Grant program is open annually to all teachers in the communities MSGCU serves. For more information about the Classroom Cash Grant program and to view the winning grant recipients’ projects, visit classrooomcash.org.Go to main navigation
