• Bookmarks: 35


May 16, 2023

Sunnyside Federal Savings and Loan and the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center (HHREC) announced a new partnership to offer the Sunnyside Federal Grant Program for Teachers, to assist them in teaching about the Holocaust and related topics including human rights, antisemitism, discrimination, racism, and genocide.

The goal for this program is to enrich student learning experiences, subsidize special programs, and help to meet instructional needs for schools not otherwise supported by their budgets. Grants of up to $400 will be awarded to teachers working in public, private, and parochial schools in the Lower Hudson Valley.

“Sunnyside Federal has been investing in our local community for more than 90 years. We are proud to support educational programs across Westchester and announce this new partnership with the Holocaust & Human Rights Education Center,” said Fred Schulman, Chairman and CEO, Sunnyside Federal. “We are very excited to be able to offer this new program through our partnership with Sunnyside Federal to our education partners in the Lower Hudson Valley,” said Millie Jasper, Executive Director.

Grant applications will be open to teachers starting August 15th, 2023 and the deadlines for submission of grant proposals and notification of awards will be made on a rolling basis. Notifications of reviewed applications will be responded to within one month of receipt.
