The pandemic couldn’t stop us from promoting the importance of Financial Literacy!

First Bank is proud to partner with EVERFI and help offer scalable and reliable education solutions for schools in our communities, especially during this unprecedented time we have all experienced!

As a 10-year partner to EVERFI, when the chance to participate in the Financial Literacy Bee was presented, First Bank jumped at the opportunity. From April 1 through April 15, students were given the opportunity to participate in financial learning modules to enrich their financial knowledge and also have a chance to write an essay that would put them in the running to win a top prize. Through outreach, First Bank had 31 visitors to EVERFI’s Bee landing page and 5 essays submitted from students who completed the program!

Over the course of the Bank’s relationship with EVERFI, First Bank’s program has impacted over 4,000 students! Last year, First Bank’s sponsorship and partnership with EVERFI has helped 355 students in 7 schools in the New Jersey & Southeastern PA regions achieve nearly 640 hours of learning in the programs supported by the sponsorship. Throughout the pandemic, the focus has remained the same – to provide educators, students, and communities with educational resources that are accessible anywhere, anytime, and at no cost to them.
