Desert Schools FCU's $150K grant aids ed project
PHOENIX (12/31/12)--Desert Schools FCU in Phoenix Wednesday awarded a $150,000 grant to support a local educational effort.

The $3.1 billion asset credit union will provide the money in a three-year grant to the Balsz Promise Neighborhood (BPN) project--which promotes long-term community education in the Phoenix area for toddlers through college-age students (Phoenix Business Journal Dec. 26).

The BPN project comprises an elementary school district, a local United Way and other community nonprofit and governmental organizations.

The mission of the neighborhood project is to develop a long-term plan to improve family and community involvement around student academic success, the Journal said.
