Kiss A Pig
On Oct. 6, 2021, TruMark Financial held its 10th annual Kiss A Pig Financial Literacy Fundraiser at the Abington Art Center in Jenkintown. This year participants had the choice of either kissing or feeding the pig. Thanks to 16 participants, which included business owners, TruMark Financial employees, and representatives from non-profit organizations, more than $20,000 was raised.
The fundraiser is a component of TruMark Financial’s initiative, Building Financial Futures. It brings together educators, community and business leaders, and credit union employees to raise money for the privilege of feeding a pig. Funds raised at the event allow area schools to provide students with resources such as such as calculators, computer software, and textbooks to help teach the value of saving and the importance of managing money responsibly. To date, TruMark Financial has donated more than $350,000 to area schools in need of personal finance resources.
Building Financial Futures Golf Classic
TruMark Financial held its sixth annual Building Financial Futures Golf Classic on Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2021, at Talamore Country Club, Ambler, Pa., in support of financial literacy. Sold out by July, more than $37,000 was raised to benefit schools in need of personal finance resources.
Golfers enjoyed a variety of contests in addition to 18 holes of scramble golf tournament play. Special thanks to our vendors who sponsored the event, local businesses that donated items for the raffle, and the 120 golfers who participated in this year’s outing. Your support helped make this year’s golf outing a huge success.
Students representing 10 different schools competed in TruMark Financial’s annual Jeopardy event for a chance to win a $5,000 scholarship. This year participants wrote two essays and had a Zoom interview with personal finance related questions instead of the usual interactive Jeopardy game show format. 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.
