Pacific Life strives to support the communities where Pacific Life employees live and work. In 1998, the Pacific Life Foundation developed the 3T’s of Education program. Grants are given to K-12 schools where there are concentrations of children or grandchildren of Pacific Life employees. A K-12 school cannot apply for a 3T's of Education grant, as it is an invitation-only process based on the results of an annual employee survey held in September.
To help schools across the nation maintain a high quality of instruction, the 3T's of Education grants must be designated by the principal in one or more of the following areas: teacher training, textbooks, and technology.
For the 2012-2013 school year
, 132 schools
are eligible for 3T grants totaling $402,500 in the following categories: Technology ($292,925) Examples include the purchase of SMART boards, computers, and student response systems Teacher Training ($83,350) Examples include funding of one-day workshops for teachers and conferences for staff Textbooks ($26,225) Examples include grants for reading books for school libraries
Over the past 16 years, the Pacific Life Foundation is pleased to have contributed nearly $5,300,000 to strengthening the learning environment of hundreds of K-12 schools nationwide.
