TTCU Announces School Pride Visa Check Cards and Donations

TTCU announced the addition of a product called School Pride Visa Check Cards. The new program will allow TTCU members to choose among 20 options featuring 19 area high schools, as well as NSU, as their debit card for their checking account. This new product was introduced to the public via a broad marketing campaign including radio, television and print advertising as well as point of sale at the TTCU branches.

The program also offers a unique twist unlike other programs of its kind. With this program each time the school card is used at a Visa merchant to make a purchase, TTCU will make a donation to the school on the card.

According to Leslie W. Rector, TTCU President, “TTCU was founded by teachers in 1934 and our membership is made up of educators, students and their families, so our ties to the school systems are very deep. We see this program as one more way we can give back to the school systems each year. We are hoping this can be a very large donation to the schools, the more our members carry the card and use it to make purchases, the more the schools receive.”

The schools included in the initial rollout of the program include: Broken Arrow, Bixby, Booker T. Washington (TPS), Central (TPS), Claremore, East Central (TPS), Edison (TPS), Hale (TPS), Jenks, McLain (TPS), Memorial (TPS), Metro Christian, Owasso, Rogers (TPS), Sand Springs, Sapulpa, Tahlequah Union, Webster (TPS) and NSU.

TTCU is the largest state-chartered credit union in Oklahoma with nine branches: five in Tulsa and one in Broken Arrow, Jenks, Owasso and Tahlequah. TTCU was established in 1934 by Tulsa teachers and now serves 75,000 members who are teachers, school faculty, administrators, staff, students and their families in northeast Oklahoma with a full complement of depository, lending and financial advisory services.
