Classroom Cash Grant Program

As an organization founded by teachers, MSGCU is committed to supporting educators to make a positive impact in local classrooms. Our Classroom Cash Grants program provides up to $750 grants to teachers to help them bring innovative project ideas to life in their classrooms that would otherwise go unfunded. This program opens annually in September and teachers can apply for a grant here.

Financial Education Presentations

MSGCU is dedicated to enhancing financial literacy for our members and the communities we serve. We provide financial education through classroom presentations, Reality Fairs, in-person and virtual workshops, and through our blog and Interactive Financial Education platform, which allows users to take quick lessons or a full playlist on a variety of topics at their leisure.
