About Truliant Financial Education Grants


In 2016, Truliant Federal Credit Union reached a milestone of helping more than 200,000 member-owners strengthen their financial foundation.  In celebration of this milestone, Truliant created the Financial Education Fund to strengthen financial literacy for students in grades 6-12.
 
Truliant’s Financial Education Fund provides up to $5,000 to public school teachers who wish to incorporate financial education into their classroom curriculum.  Proposals requesting more than $5,000 will not be considered.
 
Funds from these grants may be used to improve an existing program or implement a new program. Funding can support classroom activities, professional development opportunities or new and innovative ways to teach financial education.  Topics might include budgeting, saving, investing, entrepreneurship, business, marketing, economics and more.
 
Teachers may apply for funding on their own, or collaborate and submit an application as a department. A preliminary budget is required to demonstrate how the funds will be spent.  Teachers must also explain how the funding will directly improve a student’s financial capabilities and what the overall impact of the program might be.
 

Criteria:

  • Grants are available for public school teachers in grades 6-12.
  • Educators must teach in one of the following areas to be considered for a grant:​
    • North Carolina: Alamance, Cabarrus, Cleveland, Forsyth, Gaston, Guilford, Mecklenburg and Randolph counties.
    • South Carolina: Greenville.
    • Virginia: City of Richmond and Henrico, Pulaski and Wythe counties.

  

The deadline for submitting a Financial Education Fund grant application is 11:59 p.m. on Friday, October 12, 2018.
