How we support education

Since we were started by teachers for teachers in 1954, our core has always been supporting educational efforts in each community that we serve. We know how important it is to back initiatives that directly impact the lives of young people so that they can become productive citizens in their communities. These are some of the ways that we make that happen. 

EDUCATOR RESOURCES

For more than 60 years, supporting education has been our primary focus. Through our exclusive educator offers, classroom grant opportunities, and community contributions, we are proud to continue or legacy of giving back to all educators in our area. Educators work every day to shape our future generations and they deserve the very best products and services. We're here to help educators achieve their financial goads in any way we can!

SWIPE FOR SCHOOLS

With every swipe of an Envision VISA debit card, we donate five cents toward feeding students through backpack and food drive programs across North Florida and South Georgia (up to $10,000 per year). CLICK HERE to see more on our Swipe for Schools page. 

 

TEACHER GRANTS

Each quarter, we offer eight $500 classroom grants to educators in our membership areas totaling $16,000 of giveback directly to our teachers each year. Teachers have used these grants to bring technology into the classroom, provide financial literacy to their students and to teach students about community service. To learn more about the grant opportunities, visit our site dedicated to teachers at SuccessForEducators.com.

 

SCHOOL INVOLVEMENT PROGRAM

Our employees are volunteers who support the School Involvement Program (SIP). Since 2013, we have partnered with local Title 1 schools to provide volunteers, support and mentoring for an entire school year.

 

DONATIONS AND SPONSORSHIPS

Because Envision is actively involved in the communities we serve, we support hundreds of local causes, organizations and events each year, including those in our schools. Direct requests for financial support, promotional items, or gift cards will be considered.

We'll even come as guest speakers to classrooms or community groups for FREE workshops. CLICK HERE to browse all of our financial education resources.

 

THE BEST AND BRIGHTEST AWARDS

Founded in 2006, the Best & Brightest Awards is designed to recognize and honor Leon County's excelling high school seniors.  Unlike most scholarship programs, awards are not based solely on GPA.  The varying categories of the Best & Brightest Awards allow students who excel in a particular field to be rewarded for their hard work and dedication. There is also emphasis on community service and civic duty. Envision is proud to have provided over half a million dollars in scholarships to Best & Brightest since it's inception.
