TTCU announces $110,000 in School Pride donations
TTCU Federal Credit Union presented over $110,000 in School Pride® donations to Oklahoma area schools and universities this August. Over $1 million has been donated since the School Pride program's inception.
"We know how hard educators work each and every day to make sure that the students under their care receive an excellent education," CEO and President Tim Lyons said. "TTCU is proud to support those efforts. Our contribution is our way of honoring our roots as a credit union founded by educators."
Fifty-eight area schools and universities received donations, including $17,500 to Tulsa Public School District, $13,500 to Broken Arrow Public School District, $6,500 to Union Public School District and $6,000 to Jenks Public School District. Area higher education institutions also benefitted, with Tulsa Community College receiving $4,500 and Tulsa Technology Center receiving $2,500.
The program began in 2007 as a way for TTCU to give back to area schools. TTCU members select from among over 60 School Pride designs honoring area schools, and every time they use their debit card, TTCU makes a financial donation to the school. Checks are distributed at the start of the fall and spring semesters.
