DEARBORN, MI – DFCU Financial announced today its donation of $10,000 to the Dearborn Public Schools Education Foundation to support student achievement within the 32 schools in the Dearborn Public School District. The organization has gifted more than $510,000 to schools in communities surrounding its branch locations since 2004.
“DFCU Financial invests a significant amount of resources to positively impact the communities that surround us,” said Mark Shobe, president and CEO, DFCU Financial. “The $10,000 grant awarded to the Dearborn Public Schools Education Foundation supports a variety of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and enrichment programs that are integral in ensuring the short- and long-term success of our youth. These are programs that could be eliminated without the support of corporate partners. It is our responsibility to contribute to the ongoing development of tomorrow’s leaders, and we will continue to invest in their futures.”
Each year, DFCU Financial donates its resources to public school districts across the state to support education and develop students’ financial literacy through initiatives that promote positive, long-lasting financial habits. In addition, the organization works directly with school districts to provide financial education in classrooms and at local branches.
“DFCU Financial is a longstanding, steadfast supporter of Dearborn Public Schools, and the positive impact of its donations on our students, teachers and the foundation are immeasurable,” said Eddie Fakhoury, executive director, Dearborn Public Schools Education Foundation. “Thanks to DFCU Financial, we are able to allocate resources to meet our students’ greatest needs and continue to strengthen the foundation of our community’s success: our student body.”
