BRIDGEPORT — People’s United Community Foundation (PUCF) has awarded a $100,000 grant to DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that helps public school teachers obtain classroom resources. The PUCF grant is providing 50-percent funding for projects throughout the bank’s footprint that meet the foundation’s criteria.

In Connecticut, there are currently 90 eligible projects from schools in Ansonia, Bridgeport, Derby, Middletown, Milford, New Haven, West Haven, Wallingford and Waterbury, as well as other communities, which received 50 percent of project costs through the PUCF grant.

During Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6-10), People’s United was to recognize and celebrate teachers by featuring DonorsChoose.org teacher projects on the People’s United Bank Facebook page, and invite the public to honor teachers by helping to bring worthy educational initiatives to life. To do so they can log on to the "http://www.donorschoose.org/donors/search.html?matchingId=582&utm_source=pucf&utm_medium=pressrelease&utm_campaign=1&max=50">People’s United Campaign Page on the DonorsChoose.org website, or look for the People’s United Community Foundation logo when they search the site using their ZIP code or other search criteria.
