This program gets high marks for making a positive impact.
Educational opportunities enrich children's lives and benefit everyone in our Southeast Texas communities. We believe in the power of education - it's rooted in our values and at the heart of our existence. We're proud of our local schools and thrilled to present this opportunity to all members. There's no better feeling than making a difference in your community. To show our appreciation and support of our local schools, we have donated more than $297,000 since this program began in 2014, and are proud to say that We're Paying It Forward!
Here's how it works.
Each time a member borrows with us, we make a cash donation to a school/campus of the members choice.* These funds are unrestricted and can be used for special initiatives, programs or equipment. Each January, the aggregate donation is presented to the administrator for each campus. That means each loan makes a difference in your community.
This year we donated over $57,000 to 133 area schools! Want to know how schools have used the funds they have received? Take a view minutes to view this year's video featuring Silsbee High School. Then stick around to view videos from previous years showing how these donations have benefited Southeast Texas schools!
