GIVING BACK TO CREATE SHARED PROSPERITY
When we say we’re fully invested in our community, what does that really mean? Does it mean we donate money and volunteer? Yes, but that’s just the beginning. For Desert Schools, community involvement is about supporting our core values as a credit union.
It’s about truly investing in our community and creating a foundation for Shared Prosperity. That means we commit time, money, expertise and resources to strengthen the community that supports us all.
It means that we’re all in!
We support non-profits providing the following services in our community:
2016 COMMUNITY SERVICE SCHOLARSHIP SPOTLIGHT
Northern Arizona University
"The Community Service Scholarship has made such a difference for me and my family. I was so honored to be recognized by Desert Schools."
Online financial literacy programs offered to high school teachers
To help high school students prepare for their financial future, Desert Schools sponsored an online financial
literacy program for educators. The Money Side of Life provides teaching tools, resources and student guides on budgeting, saving, college prep, independent living and investing. The online curriculum meets national and state standards and is valued at $2,000 per school. Complimentary access to the program is available to Maricopa County teachers through our current sponsorship.
