2023-24 CASH Grant Recipients Announced

For the 2023-24 school year, Heartland Credit Union has awarded $3,800 for 10 projects through its Celebrate Academic Success with HCU (CASH) Grants. This year’s CASH Grants will affect more than 1,500 students in the following school districts: USD 261 (Haysville), USD 266 (Maize), USD 270 (Plainville), USD 308 (Hutchinson), USD 439 (Sedgwick), USD 452 (Stanton), USD 501 (Topeka), and Wichita Collegiate School.

HCU was established in 1948 with a charter signed by seven Hutchinson area teachers. Today, we're still firmly rooted in our founding principles and continue to focus on service to people and our communities. The CASH Grant originated from a desire to give added support to our member-teachers.
