The FOCUS (For Our Children's Ultimate Success) Foundation was formed in January 2005 by Coastal Community And Teachers Credit Union. Management, Staff and Board recognized the need for support of the youth in our community which includes Aransas, Duval, Jim Wells, Kleberg, Nueces and San Patricio Counties.
Since its inception, the program has awarded over $169,000 to over 100 schools and organizations that assist the youth by providing uniforms, school supplies, after school or educational programs and more.
Incorporated under the laws of the State of Texas in October 2007, the FOCUS Foundation is now a 501(c)3 tax exempt corporation. Your donations help to provide a brighter tomorrow for the children of today – Our Future!
Our mission is to provide resources throughout our communities that enable educators to teach and our children to learn.
CCATCU raises funds throughout the year in support of the FOCUS Foundation. In addition to candy sales and raffles, the Credit Union holds a Walk/Run and a Waffle Breakfast.
The FOCUS Foundation is a proud campaign partner of the Read Aloud 15 Minutes that stresses the importance of reading to young children every day. Why read aloud? Research shows that reading aloud is the single most important thing you can do to help a child prepare for reading and learning. It stimulates language and brain development, builds knowledge, instills a love of reading and creates a bond between parent and child. Join the 15 Minutes Movement!
