Impact Statement

A+ Education Foundation was established and developed by A+ Federal Credit Union in 2005 to provide grants to full-time PreK-12 educators in reaching their educational goals. These grants help fund programs and training for educators in the communities served by A+ Federal Credit Union. Foundation grants have funded a variety of classroom and school projects, including a peace garden, a reference library, and a "Learning Closet" of interactive games and activities.

Needs Statement

With ever increasing budget cuts for education, educators throughout central Texas are finding it more difficult to secure funding to implement projects in their classroom. The mission of A+ Education Foundation is to provide grants to educators, to enhance the education experience for their students.
"I would like to thank A+FCU for the opportunity to apply for and the privilege of receiving one of their grants! I teach in an economically disadvantaged school where funds are not as readily available as they might be elsewhere! The A+FCU grant money has allowed me to purchase materials to assist my 2nd graders in reading fluency and comprehension. I am already seeing improvement in their reading as they participate in these stations that they thoroughly enjoy and learn at the same time!"

Thank you A+FCU for caring about my 2nd graders!"

"Do you have a great idea that you want to use in your classroom but just don't have the equipment or materials to make it happen? A+ Education Foundation might be able to help make your dreams come true. In science I wanted to give my students the necessary tools to help them grasp the abstract concept of energy. A+ Education Foundation, through their grant program, made it possible to purchase the equipment. The process was so easy and organized. The people at A+ Education Foundation are supportive and made sure the money was available quickly after the application was selected."
-Arlene Jordan

"The Brushy Creek Family would like to thank A+ Education Foundation for providing an invaluable service to our school. The grant we received will affect countless children as they build a life long love of reading through the use of new technology. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of our students today and in the future!"
-Ami Uselman
