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.
TruMark Financial held its fourth annual Building Financial Futures Golf Classic on Monday, July 15, at Talamore Country Club, Ambler, Pa., and raised more than $30,000 in support of financial literacy.
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 and local businesses that donated items for the silent auction table. Your support helped make this year’s golf outing a huge success.
