Customized debit cards also are available to anyone in the community through the Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union. The cards, which will be available mid-August, feature each of the EVSC’s four-year high schools – Bosse, Central, Harrison, North, Reitz and New Tech Institute – as well as one for the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation.
The agreement will provide an additional revenue source for EVSC and allow alumni, employees and parents the opportunity to select a school-branded debit card for their use. ETFCU will share the revenue from the sales generated when using the school-branded debit card. Based on projected card adoption and usage, substantial earnings could be produced for the EVSC. The funding produced for the EVSC will be assigned to EVSC Foundation for processing and will be used for a variety of purposes, including operating expenses, EVSC programs and more. In addition, a percentage of the revenue generated will go to EVSC schools for discretionary use.
Those interested may apply for an account and school-branded debit card online at www.etfcu.org/join or by visiting any ETFCU office location. ETFCU locations, office hours, and other credit union information are available online at www.etfcu.org.
