Teacher Grants are funded by the Maps Community Foundation through proceeds from Maps' Free Community Checking account. Maps donates a penny to the foundation every time a member uses their debit card.
With our roots as an educator’s credit union, we remain committed to supporting teachers, students, and our local schools. In 2022, we plan to award a total of (25) $1,000 Teacher Grants across our Mid-Willamette Valley region.
We look forward to supporting our 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.
Preference will be given to teachers who are Maps members, but membership is not required to apply. All K-12 public and private school teachers in Marion and Polk Counties are eligible. Our Maps branches will support the Maps Community Foundation in selecting and distributing teacher grants for 2022.
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.
