Extra Credit Bundle

An Account Just for Educators

Teachers, aides, principals, counselors – really anyone working in a school – they all play a significant role in a child’s life. They mentor, motivate and nourish student development. Educators frequently put their student’s needs before their own, often at their own financial expense. To show our appreciation, Family First is proud to offer the Extra Credit Bundle, designed with the unique financial needs of educators in mind!

Our goal is to simplify the financial challenges placed on educators. The Extra Credit Bundle offers a variety of unique products tailored to best fit the needs of teachers and school employees serving grades K-12. If you open a new membership with us, you can take advantage of the following benefits:

  • Summer Savings Account – to help with those non-pay months
  • High Interest Checking Account – have your money work for you!
  • Exclusive Loan Product Discounts & More!

In addition to the Extra Credit Bundle, Family First is offering twenty $250 Classroom Grants to support classroom needs in our communities. This grant is available to all educators working with grades K-12. Click the button below to download the grant application. Completed applications can be returned to a branch near you or emailed to [email protected]

The Teacher Grant application deadline is Saturday, October 16th. Grant recipients will be notified and funds deposited into your Family First account by November 19th, 2021.
