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 2016-2017 school year, 156 schools were eligible for 3T grants totaling $559,500 in the following categories:
Examples include the purchase of Chromebooks, iPads, and software
Examples include funding of one-day workshops for teachers and conferences for staff
Examples include grants for reading books for school libraries
Over the past 19 years, the Pacific Life Foundation is pleased to have contributed nearly $7.2 million to strengthening the learning environment of hundreds of K-12 schools nationwide.
