Westerra is pleased to award 71 grants to local schools in the following districts: 27J, Adams 12, Aurora Public Schools, Denver Public Schools, Douglas County Schools, Englewood Public Schools, Huerfano Re-1 School District, and Jeffco School District.

Westerra’s School Grant Program, which was launched in 2010, has become a cherished tradition. Over the years, this program has contributed over $500,000 to more than 1,000 Denver metro area schools. These monetary awards enable teachers and school staff to purchase items, such as, art supplies, sports fees and equipment, after-school programs, and classroom materials, to support academic success and personal growth. “We examine each application with great attention to detail,” said Andrea McDermott, Community Relations Manager for Westerra Credit Union. “We want to bolster programs that encourage the greatest amount of good for students, schools and communities.” This year, Westerra was pleased to award 71 grants to local schools in the following districts: 27J, Adams 12, Aurora Public Schools, Denver Public Schools, Douglas County Schools, Englewood Public Schools, Huerfano Re-1 School District, and Jefferson County School District.
