Educator Grants

Slide 1
Supporting Educators

We are committed to our local educators and their students.

IRFCU is unwaveringly committed to supporting local educators and enhancing educational experiences for students in the community. Recognizing the crucial role that teachers play in shaping the future, IRFCU has initiated a grant program to empower educators in implementing innovative programs for their students. This commitment stems from the belief that investing in education is an investment in the community’s prosperity. By offering grants to teachers, IRFCU aims to foster a dynamic learning environment that nurtures creativity, critical thinking, and lifelong learning. The credit union understands the profound impact teachers have on shaping the next generation, and through this grant initiative, IRFCU seeks to strengthen the educational foundation for a brighter future.
