Beginning in the Fall 2017 semester, TruMark Financial® Credit Union will provide affordable financial products and services at a new student-operated credit union branch on La Salle’s campus. TruMark Financial is also providing a significant gift to La Salle for the naming rights to its major athletics facility: the Tom Gola Arena at the Hayman Center will be known as the Tom Gola Arena at the TruMark Financial Center. TruMark Financial will also provide scholarship and financial literacy support for students at the University.
“We couldn’t miss the opportunity to enter into this win-win relationship with TruMark Financial, one of the region’s most significant names in credit unions,” said La Salle Vice President for University Advancement Cathleen Parsons-Nikolic´. “Our students will undoubtedly benefit from the financial literacy services provided by TruMark Financial, and as this relationship grows, benefits will expand to our alumni.”
“This new relationship aims to draw on the distinct strengths of each organization in working with youth: TruMark Financial’s commitment to providing financial education for young adults and La Salle’s mission and tradition of combining progressive ideas with practical needs of students,” said Richard F. Stipa, chief executive officer of TruMark Financial.
