Intro

Visions Federal Credit Union gives a special thanks to our educators who work all year round to prepare the next generation.

Your selfless dedication to improving young lives in our communities inspires us. We share your commitment to the community and appreciate the opportunity to be a partner in your personal finances and professional teaching.

Your work in the classroom forms a foundation for bright futures.

We want to give you the tools for financial stability so that you can strengthen students and families. Visions loves educators and we’re proud to offer these premium financial products and services to you as an educator and a member.

Check out these exclusive perks for educators in New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey!

Become a Summer Saver

Easily prepare for next summer with our educator-focused savings accounts. Summer Savers choose a percentage or set dollar amount from regular paychecks for deposit into a dividend-earning fund. We’ll automatically transfer your savings into an account of your choice each year on July 1.

Double Skip-A-Payment

Take a summer vacation from your bills with Visions’ Double Skip-A-Payment. Educators can skip their eligible July and August payments on select loan types, so they can enjoy some well-deserved financial R & R.

Let Visions fund your next classroom project!

Visions loves educators for all the passion they put into their jobs.

We also understand that most put a lot of their own money into their classrooms. In fact, it’s estimated that educators pay an average of about $450 out-of-pocket for items not covered by the school budget.

That’s why we created the Visions Loves Educators Classroom Funding Program.

Visions will award full funding, up to $500, for projects submitted by educators at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. We’ve committed $20,000 to the program, so multiple projects may win! Our educators give so much to their kids and our communities. This is just one small way we can give back to them.


Visions loves all educators! But, only classrooms in the communities we serve are eligible at this time.
