TruMark Financial’s ninth annual Kiss-A-Pig Financial Literacy Fundraiser was held on Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2019, at the Abington Art Center in Jenkintown. The fundraiser is a component of TruMark Financial’s initiative, Building Financial Futures. This fundraiser brought together educators, community and business leaders, and credit union employees to raise money for the privilege of kissing a pig. Funds raised at this event allow area schools to provide students with the tools needed to learn the basics of personal finance. Armed with the fundamentals of saving, borrowing, and investing, students are able to make more informed decisions and secure a future filled with financial success.
To date, TruMark Financial has donated more than $300,000 to area schools in need of personal finance resources. Local schools use 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.
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.
