The Summit Federal Credit Union ($1.1 billion, Rochester, N.Y.) announced its intention to contribute $10,000 over two years to the athletics program at Monroe Community College in Rochester.

In addition to the monetary contribution, the new partnership between the credit union and Monroe Community College Athletics will result in new opportunities for the credit union to educate the school’s students and recent graduates about personal finances, as well as engage with student and faculty members. First, The Summit said it plans to host educational personal finance sessions, led by its senior business relations specialist, for MCC students and recent graduates entering the workforce. Second, the credit union will add a dedicated MCC webpage to its site containing educational articles and information for MCC staff and faculty; a “Summit Corner” webpage will also be developed for the MCC’s site, which will link directly to The Summit’s MCC page.
