Each year, the Georgia United Foundation partners with Georgia United Credit Union to offer its School Crashers program to K-12 schools in Georgia. Each spring, deserving schools can apply for a facility makeover that will be delivered over the summer by Georgia United team members, community volunteers and business partners.
Over the last six years, School Crashers has positively impacted the learning environments for children at 50 schools with improvements valued at $1.5 million. The 2020 program delivered significant facility improvements to five schools.
Congratulations to our 2020 School Crashers recipients!

Two schools were selected to receive a Mohawk Carpet Grant. These schools had their Media Center carpets replaced. Mohawk Industries provided approximately 4,000 square feet of flooring improvement across all grant recipients. Congratulations to Avondale Elementary School and Booker T. Washington High School!
Avondale Elementary needed makeover to their media center/library encouraged their students to explore learning through books and building connections. Their overall goal was to create an inviting, comfortable, and colorful place where reading, learning, and discovering are fun and School Crashers achieved that.
Booker T. Washington's grant created a more inviting media center that helped promote collaboration and engagement. Martin Luther King, Jr. once studied inside the walls of Booker T. Washington and they honored that history while propelling their literacy program forward.
