Trumark Financial® Credit Union empowers over 1,000 students with financial reality fairs

Philadelphia Area College and High Students test financial knowledge with real-world scenarios

FORT WASHINGTON, PA (June 27, 2023) — TruMark Financial Credit Union is proud to announce the successful conclusion of its Financial Reality Fairs held during the 2022-2023 school year, making a significant impact on the financial education and preparedness of over a thousand local students.

Held at various educational institutions, including Bensalem High School, Cheltenham High School, Wissahickon High School, Upper Dublin High School, and La Salle University, the Reality Fair immerses students in a “real-world” environment where they must make informed spending decisions within a set budget across essential categories such as housing, transportation, food, clothing, and insurance. Financial counselors offered expert advice to help students fine-tune their budgets and live within their set salary constraints.

The success of the Financial Reality Fairs would not have been possible without the dedication of the volunteers who generously shared their time and expertise. TruMark Financial extends its gratitude to all the individuals and organizations that supported these events and helped make a lasting impact on the students.

As the 2022-2023 school year ends, TruMark Financial remains committed to continuing its efforts in promoting financial literacy and providing opportunities for young individuals to enhance their financial capabilities. By equipping students with the necessary tools to navigate the complexities of personal finance, TruMark Financial strives to create a brighter future for the communities it serves.

“I am proud to witness the transformative power of our Financial Reality Fairs,” said Kelly Botti, CEO of TruMark Financial. “It’s more than just an event; it gives students the hands-on experience of managing a budget and making major financial decisions. We believe in equipping individuals with the knowledge and skills to navigate the real world with confidence. At TruMark Financial, we are committed to paving the way for brighter financial futures.”
