Maps is excited to see teachers and students back in the classroom this year!

With our roots as an educator’s credit union, we remain committed to supporting teachers, students, and our local schools. In 2023, our Maps Community Foundation plans to award a total of $30,000 in Teacher Grants across our Mid-Willamette Valley region. 

We look forward to supporting local K-12 teachers by funding creative projects that will make a difference for students and the school community. Grants can be used for classroom and/or school-wide projects, technology needs, field trips, and educational after-school clubs.
All K-12 public and private school teachers in Marion and Polk Counties are eligible to apply. Preference will be given to teachers who are Maps members. Teachers can request grants in the range of $500 – $1,000 based upon project need. Our Maps branches will support the Foundation in selecting and distributing teacher grants for 2023. 

How to apply: Submit a short, written application and photo on our website. Be prepared to describe how the award will be used, the impact of the project, total cost of the project and why support is needed from Maps, and most importantly: “How will this grant make a difference for your students?”

Who is eligible: K-12 public and private school teachers in Marion or Polk Counties. Preference will be given to teachers who are Maps members.

Teachers founded Maps almost a century ago, and we are proud of our history as an educators’ credit union. To show support for area teachers, we are pleased to help the education community through these teacher grants. Since 2012, this program has invested more than $65,000 in local students, teachers, and schools, which have funded classroom projects and after school enrichment programs.
