U.S. Eagle Seeks To Award $9,000 In Grants To Local Educators

Albuquerque, NM – U.S. Eagle Federal Credit Union today announced that applications for the 2019 enrichEd Classroom grant program are now being accepted.

Nine $1,000 grants will be dedicated to local public and charter school educators K through12.

The enrichEd Classroom Grant Program addresses challenges New Mexico currently faces in terms of funding, resources, and innovation. Through this initiative, local schools are able to implement projects that excite curiosity and motivate children to learn.

New Mexico ranks next to last in public education nearly each year. “The high poverty rate is hindering our children’s success,” said President/CEO Marsha Majors. “Teachers spend their own money, trying to prevent students from falling behind. As leaders in our community, we feel compelled to step up and support them.”

The enrichEd Classroom Grant can be used for books, technology, equipment, school supplies, and any other items to enrich the classroom experience. “We don’t want to limit their creativity; we want to encourage new ways of learning.”

Applications are being accepted from August 7 to September 6th. Recipients will be announced the week of September 16th and are invited to join us for the October 5th New Mexico United soccer match to celebrate and recognize our educators’ hard work.
