Eastern Utah Community Credit Union (EUCCU) has donated $1,500 to Canyonlands Field Institute (CFI) to help support community outdoor education programs, CFI officials said in a news release. The EUCCU donation will provide $1,000 in underwriting toward scholarship and program support for Grand County Middle School’s eighth-grade outdoor science program this spring and $500 toward scholarships for fourth- through sixth-grade La Sal Base Camp programs this summer, according to the news release.

CFI is a Moab non-profit educational organization designed to cultivate youth awareness and appreciation for the Colorado Plateau. “Eastern Utah Community Credit Union supports our local businesses and nonprofit agencies,” EUCCU officials stated in the news release.

“We are happy to be a part of this great community and recognize the benefits of CFI’s contributions.”

The partnership between EUCCU and CFI will help increase the number of local students who can attend the outdoor education programs, CFI officials said.
