Grant Programs

Teacher Grant Program

The Leyden Credit Union Teacher Grant Program has been established to provide grants up to $500 to aid in the development of effective teaching strategies and projects. Grants will be awarded to teachers who encourage and support experiential learning, enhance student understanding and increase student achievement.

Proposed projects must be submitted by an eligible educator* and may involve museum or field trips, environmental or science projects, artistic or cultural experiences, civics or community service projects, and the creation of a final student product that promotes student learning. These grants are meant as a supplement to general operating funds, not as a substitute.

Applications may be picked up at the Credit Union office:

2701 N. 25th Ave. Franklin Park, Il.

Your Home school office will have a small supply.

All applications must be mailed or hand-delivered to our office. E-mailed or faxed applications will not be accepted.

*Eligible educators must either be a current member of Leyden Credit Union or their home school must be affiliated with Leyden Credit Union services (i.e. payroll deduction ). Open to include educators from elementary, middle, junior high and senior high schools.

Requirements and Application forms are available online in our Printable Forms section and at the credit union office.
