Volunteer Investment Program (VIP)

Our employees give back locally

Hundreds of hours volunteered annually

At Education First, volunteering is always a priority

Sure, our products and services are valuable and help members with their finances. But there's nothing more valuable than a generous spirit, and Education First employees are proud to give back.

We don't just say it, we do it:

Lots of business talk about a commitment to community. We roll up our sleeves and exhibit it. Through our Volunteer Investment Program (VIP), our employees donate 800 hours of volunteer work each year to projects and organizations in Southeast Texas. Want to know what motivates us? We're passionate about investing in the communities we serve. We enjoy regularly participating in events with Boy's Haven, the Southeast Texas State Fair, Relay for Life, the Southeast Texas Food Bank and many other organizations.

We also turn workdays into opportunities to raise money for worthy organizations in our communities. Every Friday, employees can donate cash into our Blue Jean Fridays Fund for the chance to dress down in denim. The money adds up quickly and, to date, we've donated nearly $8,000 to Southeast Texas causes.

If you want to learn more about VIP or you have ideas for additional ways to serve, please call us at 409.898.3770!
As a result of our Volunteer Investment Program, we will be receiving a corporate volunteer award at the Southeast Texas Food Bank’s Volunteer Appreciation Banquet on April 17, 2018.
