North Island Credit Union Looking to Fund Innovative Classroom Projects

Credit union encourages San Diego County teachers to apply for a class project grant

North Island Credit Union 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 November in the fall program.

“We are committed to serving our local education community, and honored to continue our tradition of support through our teacher grant program,” 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 their students, and encourage any teacher who has an exciting project idea to apply for one of our grants.”

Interested Coronado teachers can find more information and apply online at The application deadline is October 18, 2019.

Since the creation of the program in 2012, the credit union has awarded $95,000 in teacher grants to benefit students across Southern California. The bi-annual program offers up to 20 grants in the spring and fall to teachers across San Diego and Los Angeles counties.
