$1,000 grant for financial education materials or supplies available to Minnesota teachers, schools, or community groups

The Affinity Plus Foundation will award five $1,000 Financial Literacy Cultivator Grants.

ST. PAUL, MN (April 9, 2015) – Teachers, schools, and community groups located in Minnesota who provide financial education to their students and participants are invited to apply for a $1,000 Financial Literacy Cultivator Grant. This year, the Affinity Plus Foundation will award five grants that may be used for financial education materials or supplies.

The mission of the Affinity Plus Foundation is “to enhance the quality of life in Minnesota communities through partnership in financial education, programs and support.” The Financial Literacy Cultivator Grant was first introduced in April 2013 and at that time was awarded to one teacher or school, and one community group.

“This year, we made the decision to award five grants to further demonstrate our commitment to financial education and the teachers, schools, and organizations who are actively striving to make a difference in people’s lives by providing these types of educational opportunities,” shares executive director, Amy Hanson. “All Minnesotans deserve the chance to learn about finances, and how to manage, save, and plan for the future.”

More information about the Financial Literacy Cultivator Grant can be found online on the Affinity Plus Foundation’s website at Applications can be picked up at any Affinity Plus Federal Credit Union branch location or submitted online at
