Community Partners Education Grant

CPEG Mission: Local businesses supporting local educators with funds to enrich the student’s learning environment.

Thank you to Sierra Pacific Foundation for the continued support of our local teachers.

Grants are available to K-12 classrooms/schools in South Mason and East Grays Harbor County.  The amount awarded is considered based on merit and need.  Grants are designated for the 2018/19 school year.

Community is in our middle name and working together is part of the OCCU mission. Together, local businesses make classroom grants available to local teachers, supporting their efforts to enhance the classroom experience. Last year the Community Partners raised a total of $23,000 and awarded a total of 28 classroom grants across Mason and Grays Harbor Counties.
