TruMark Financial Credit Union hosted its 11th annual Financial Jeopardy competition on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, at its headquarters in Fort Washington, Pa. The Financial Jeopardy competition, a spin-off of the long-running nightly quiz show that airs on 6ABC in Philadelphia, tests students’ personal finance knowledge in categories such as banking, credit, taxes, budgeting, and investments. At the end of the competition, three scholarships were awarded – a $5,000 grand prize, a $3,000 second prize, and a $2,000 third prize – to the students who fared best in the Jeopardy, Double Jeopardy, and Final Jeopardy rounds of the competition. In addition to the top three prizes, each of the other contestants received a $200 scholarship.
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. The Financial Jeopardy competition is one component of the credit union’s financial literacy initiative “Building Financial Futures” that provides students with sound financial principles that will serve them throughout their lifetime.
The Kiss-A-Pig Financial Literacy Fundraiser is the signature event of TruMark Financial’s Building Financial Futures initiative. The fundraiser brings together educators, community and business leaders, and credit union employees to raise money for the privilege of kissing a pig.
To date, TruMark Financial has donated more than $250,000 to area schools in need of personal finance resources. Local schools used the grants to purchase resources such as calculators, computer software, and textbooks to help teach the value of saving and the importance of managing money responsibly.
TruMark Financial’s seventh annual Kiss-A-Pig Financial Literacy Fundraiser raised over $30,000 on Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017.
