We recognize and appreciate the extraordinary effort and sacrifice Hawaii’s public school teachers provide to our community. That’s why we created our Investing in Education grant to assist teachers in the State of Hawaii Department of Education to obtain much-needed supplies, books, furniture, electronics, equipment and other basic necessities for their classrooms.
2018 Investing in Education Grant Program
Hawaii State FCU members are invited to apply for our Investing in Education grant program. We encourage applicants to think outside the box when it comes to letting us know about their needs and how the grant will enhance student learning.
Each grant will vary between $200 and $500 and will be determined based on individual essay submissions (limited to one per teacher per calendar year). Grant funds will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
All applications and essays will be accepted starting September 1, 2018, and must be postmarked no later than October 31, 2018. For more information on the Investing in Education grant program, contact Financial Educator Jennifer Russo at [email protected] or (808) 447-7044.
