TTCU Federal Credit Union donated $ 500 to the Skiatook Public School District in August as part of the School Pride program. Other schools in the Skiatook region also took advantage. Sperry received $ 1,000 and Collinsville received $ 3,000.
“I am pleased to report that our August School Pride® donations have increased by almost 20% over last year,” said Tim Lyons, TTCU President and CEO. “The TTCU was founded by teachers, but now we are accepting members from all walks of life. However, our passion for supporting local schools remains the same.
Many other school districts in the Tulsa region have also benefited. Broken Arrow received $ 18,500, while Union Public Schools received $ 8,500 and Jenks Public Schools received $ 7,500. Over the past fourteen years, TTCU’s School Pride program has distributed over $ 1 million to area schools.
The School Pride® program began in 2007 as a way for TTCU to give back to area schools. TTCU members choose from over 60 School Pride designs honoring schools in the area, and each time they use their debit card, the TTCU makes a financial donation to the school.
A TTCU checking account with a School Pride Visa® debit card can be opened online or at any branch. Visit ttcu.com for more information.
