In late 2002, Utah’s credit unions joined forces to created 100% for Kids: Utah’s Credit Union Education Foundation. The foundation is funded primarily by donations made by Utah’s credit unions and their members. Since 2002, the foundation has funded more than $5 million worth of grants for Utah’s public schools.
Public school teachers in Utah can apply for grants. Grants can range from small, to purchase basic classroom supplies, to major, to fund large school-wide projects. The application process is simple, and can be completed online or on paper.
