Applications are open for US Eagle Credit Union’s enrichEd program, which is making $10,000 available to support New Mexico public school teachers at $1,000 each for 10 schools.
“As leaders in our community, we feel it is our obligation to step up and ensure New Mexico students can be as successful as possible as they adapt to the new learning environment,” US Eagle President and CEO Marsha Majors said in a statement.
The grant program is designed to meet the need for enhanced safety protocols and unique instances that general funding may not cover, organizers said in a news release.
The money can be used for PPE, cleaning supplies, electronics, software and licensing and other items to ensure a safe learning environment.
Applications can be submitted online at http://useagle.org/westaystrong#enrichEd through Oct. 2.
US Eagle’s internal philanthropy committee will review applications and select 10 schools based on need, students served and geographic diversity.
Recipients will be announced on International Credit Union Day, Oct. 15, organizers said.
