Credit union rocks the day away in support of financial literacy

In 2017, the credit union created the TruMark Financial Cares Foundation to make an impactful difference in the community. The TruMark Financial Cares Foundation provides support to increase financial literacy initiatives, foster community development, and engage in programs and partnerships designed to improve the quality of life for families in underserved or low-income communities. Through the TruMark Financial Cares Foundation, events like Lyrics & Literacy raise funds for schools in need of personal finance resources.

As financial “illiteracy” and college debt among young people increase and school budgets shrink, TruMark Financial works to bridge the gap with programs that educate students about credit, loans, saving, and investing. In an effort to provide students with sound financial principles as they transition into adulthood, TruMark Financial employees visit local high schools and conduct presentations on topics such as banking, establishing and maintaining good credit, budgeting, and investing. TruMark Financial presentations provide third-party expertise to students and complement the schools’ existing personal finance curricula.

Armed with the fundamentals of saving, borrowing, and investing, students will be able to make more informed decisions and to secure a future filled with financial success. In addition, TruMark Financial operates six student-run branches in high schools and colleges throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania.
