A True "Cents" of Community: Advancing Education



Achieva Credit Union has been in Sarasota for 10 years and has been proud to be a GOOD neighbor every step of the way. The SRQ March BrandStory highlights several of the many of Achieva Credit Union’s community initiatives that advance education. Since Achieva Credit Union was founded by teachers, it only makes sense to get behind Sarasota schools in meaningful ways.

BACK 2 SCHOOL BASH: Hosted at the Sarasota Square Mall and University Town Center, Achieva handed out free backpacks and school supplies to local students at this event. Achieva also awarded students for their academic achievements: If they showed their report cards as proof that they made honor roll, they received a $25 bonus when opening an Achieva account.

ACHIEVA RUN FOR GOOD: Achieva hosts this annual family-friendly 5K run and walk, kids run, and dog walk (and costume contest) to benefit Sarasota schools.

WILKINSON ELEMENTARY SCHOOL: Achieva has handed out “good job bucks” to Wilkin-on Elementary students for their punctuality, attendance and good grades. The students use the good job bucks to spend at the school’s “Positive Behavior School Store,” which was created to re- ward students for good behavior.

HERON CREEK MIDDLE SCHOOL GRANT: Using funds raised from the Run for GOOD, Achieva awarded a classroom grant to students at Heron Creek Middle School. The money was used for a hands-on activity where the kids learned about bees and beehives.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND GRANTS: Achieva awards annual college scholarships to deserving high school students who plan to major in education. But that’s not all. Working with the Education Foundation of Sarasota County, Achieva has given 120 classroom grants – a total of $200,000 – to deserving Sarasota teachers since the partnership began in 2011.
