November 1, 2019 – Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union (MSGCU) is excited to announce its Classroom Cash Grants program recipients for 2019. This year, MSGCU is awarding $51,375 to 71 educators spanning 52 schools across the Metro Detroit area. The grants, worth up to $750 each, help with the implementation of innovative learning experiences that foster students’ exploration, independent thinking and problem solving. Projects include flexible seating and sensory resources, interactive reading systems, technology enhancements and many others.

With a heritage rooted in education, MSGCU is committed to supporting the entrepreneurial spirit and dedication of the teaching community. Since its inception, the Classroom Cash Grants program has awarded more than $480,000 to local teachers. The program has funded nearly 1,000 unique projects that enhance the academic environment and would not otherwise be possible.

“We strongly believe in the power of education and the important role educators play in the development of our youth,” said Pete Gates, MSGCU President/CEO. “We are humbled to provide this resource to educators as they plan creative and impactful learning experiences in their classrooms this school year.”

Classroom Cash Grants program winners are determined based on total votes cast by students, parents, colleagues, family members and friends. More than 100,000 votes were cast during a ten-day online voting period.

The Classroom Cash Grant program is open annually to all teachers in the communities MSGCU serves. For more information about the Classroom Cash Grant program and to view the grant recipients’ projects, visit classrooomcash.org.
