Texas foundation disperses 237K in grants for 2011


FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (2/27/12)--The Texas Credit Union Foundation followed the distribution of more than $237,285 in 2011 by awarding $73,400 in grants in the first quarter of 2012.

The 2011 grants were distributed statewide to support financial literacy initiatives, provide professional development for staff and volunteers through credit unions and chapters, offer Southwest CUNA Management School scholarships and create opportunities for credit union professionals to become development educators through the National Credit Union Foundation.

Grants made so far in 2012 include $7,500 in "Make the Difference" grants of up to $500 each to credit unions and partners to support financial education and highlight National Financial Literacy Month in April.

In addition, the Texas foundation is co-sponsoring the BizKid$ PBS education series on television station KERA with the Fort Worth Chapter of Credit Unions. The series combines on-air programming with curriculum and materials that can be used in classrooms.
