Grant Recipients

$20,000 to U.C. Teachers in Fall 2017

The mission of EdUCate! is to provide supplemental resources to University City public schools. A cornerstone of this funding is the EdUCate! Teacher Grant program as it provides additional assistance directly to the heart of our schools…the classrooms! We are pleased to announce another successful round of funding. This year, through our fall  grants, $20,000 in grant monies was distributed directly to 28 teachers for their classrooms this school year.

The Teacher Grant committee carefully considers and scores all grant applications on the basis of several factors including the number of students the grant will impact, its educational value, the longevity of the project, its practicality, innovation, collaboration and cost effectiveness.

This program directly impacts our children so please consider supporting these grants through a tax-deductible donation through any one of our giving programs: Honor a Teacher, Dollar a Day, Oktoberfest and Taste of the Triangle. We appreciate your donation!

Congratulations to our 2017 Fall Teacher Grant Recipients!
