Education First Donates over $50,000 to Local Scools

Education First Donates over $50,000 to Local Scools

On January 22, 2020,  Education First hosted our 5th annual We're Paying It Forward luncheon, where we distributed over $50,000 donations to administrators from 136 schools our Southeast Texas community. 

The donations are derived from our We're Paying It Forward program, which was started in 2014 as a way to allow our members to be directly involved with our support of education in their local community.  Through this program, when a member borrows from us, Education First directs a portion of the loan proceeds to the school of their choice.  Each January, we host a luncheon to present these schools with their checks.  

The event has tripled in size over the last five years, and we are proud to have provided over $200,000 in unrestricted funding to local schools.  
 
Thank YOU for helping us pay it forward!
