Local Teachers Receive More Than $45,000 in Classroom Grants from MSGCU
Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union (MSGCU) recently announced its 2018 Classroom Cash Grant recipients. This year, MSGCU awarded $45,336 to 63 educators spanning 43 schools across the Metro Detroit area.
The grants, worth up to $750 each, help with the implementation of innovative learning experiences that foster students’ exploration, independent thinking and problem solving. Projects include flexible seating and sensory resources, interactive reading systems, technology enhancements and many others.
With a heritage rooted in education, MSGCU is committed to supporting the entrepreneurial spirit and dedication of the teaching community. Over the past 12 years, the Classroom Cash Grant program has awarded hundreds of educators with incremental funding for unique projects that enhance their academic environment that would not otherwise be possible.
“We strongly believe in the power of education and the important role educators play in the development of our youth,” said Pete Gates, MSGCU President/CEO. “We are humbled to provide this resource to educators as they plan creative and impactful learning experiences in their classrooms this school year.”
Classroom Cash Grant winners are determined based on total votes cast by students, parents, colleagues, family members and friends. This year, more than 160,000 votes were cast during a two-week online voting period.
The 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 grant recipients’ projects, visit classrooomcash.org.Go to main navigation
