What a year. I cannot begin to even imagine how difficult the past months have been for you, as an educator, since COVID wrecked our worlds beginning in March. There is so much that I am unsure of. One thing I am certain of though, is that Envision is still here to walk along side of you as you navigate what back to school this year. I wanted to take a quick moment to remind you of all the many ways we will continue to support you this year.
First, we are sending you an academic planner for the new school year to your district office. Be on the lookout for information from administration soon.
Second, don't forget about our educator discount program that we brought back this year for the third year in a row. We partnered again with local businesses to bring you discounts that you receive ALL. YEAR. LONG. as a special thank you for all that you do for students and families in our community. Check out our partners now and take advantage of discounts until teacher appreciation week next year.
Third, we hope you will apply for our grant program. Each nine weeks we give 12 deserving teachers a $500 grant (in the form of a VISA gift card) to put toward a special classroom need or project. We give away $24,000 per year. Have a project or need in mind? Apply now.
Lastly, we know that your personal finances may look a little different than you expected. If you have been impacted by major change this year, remember that we offer a 1% educator discount on most of our loans. You can also reach out to us if you have specific needs that we can help you with. Email our team at Community@EnvisionCU.com and we'll help point you in the right direction.
On behalf of our entire team at Envision Credit Union, thank you! Thank you for your commitment to your students, our kids, our future. We wish you a successful year ahead, full of health and happiness for all.
