Classroom Improvement Grant

We make money available to teachers who come up with creative ways to enrich their students' lives.

"I would like to say thank you for being a wonderful bank. The people are always helpful, caring, treat us like family. I have been with you for 29 wonderful years! I am so glad a co-worker shared her experience with me back when I first started working here at Duarte High 29 years ago. Keep up the great work!"
