As part of its ongoing financial literacy efforts, the Souderton-based bank recently participated in the American Bankers Association’s Teach Children to Save Day. This national campaign, which occurs every April during financial literacy month, aims to prepare young people for financial success later in life by helping them develop smarter saving and spending habits at an early age.
Last Friday, Univest employees visited eight local schools to teach lessons about saving, budgeting, and needs versus wants in decision-making to students in kindergarten through eighth grades.
Univest firmly believes in giving back to the local communities it serves. In bringing this spirit of service to life, the bank offers strong leadership, employee volunteerism, and financial support to organizations whose programs and services complement Univest’s brand and mission.
In 2018, Univest donated more than $1.9 million to more than 480 organizations – its giving is focused on the areas of youth and education, health and social services, community and economic development, and arts and culture – and its employees volunteered 18,705 hours. This is the bank’s way of making a difference each day, through helping to improve the quality of life for its friends and neighbors.
“One of the best things about Univest is we are local – giving our customers access to local decision makers who live, work, and play in our community,” said Jeffrey M. Schweitzer, the CEO of Univest Financial Corporation. “We take pride in delivering competitive, convenient solutions and exceptional service.”
