Student activities, athletics and other needs will get a boost from a $53,228 donation thanks to Gesa Credit Union and the community.
For the second year in a row Richland School District received the most money from Gesa’s Co-Branded Debit Card Program of any participating school district. This year’s payout is providing $227,000 to districts throughout the Mid-Columbia and Yakima Valley.
The annual contribution from Gesa is determined by how many times the credit union’s Richland High School- or Hanford High School-branded debit cards are used.
The program also supports the credit union’s branches at Richland and Hanford high schools, which give students the opportunity to build their financial literacy. The branches are operated and managed by students trained by Gesa staff.
Gesa customers may request the branded cards at no charge and there is no fee for their use. Learn more about the program.
