“Educators are on the front lines, teaching and inspiring the next generation of innovators, leaders and game-changers,” said Todd Lane, President and CEO of California Coast Credit Union. “We know that sometimes funding can be an obstacle for teachers. California Coast Credit Union was founded by educators and we remain committed to helping our local education communities, including teachers as they return to in-person and hybrid learning environments.”

The Cal Coast Cares Foundation Educator Grants are provided to teachers in K-12 public, private or charter schools, community and state colleges/universities in San Diego or Riverside Counties with funds to support special classroom projects related to any of the STREAM fields (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, and Math).
