It’s Not too Late to Take Part in Our Annual Teacher Campaign
Feels Like Summer Just Flew By…
… and that means life for teachers is about to become a lot more complicated. In between the lesson plans, classroom prep and staff meetings it can be tough to find time for yourself. That’s why we started our Annual Teacher Appreciation Campaign here at Service First, so that teachers buying a home can receive a little help inside the classroom too.
If you’re an educator who spends at least 75% of your time interacting with students than you’re eligible. To qualify, make sure you speak to one of our loan officers by August 31st. When your loan closes you’ll get a $500 donation to DonorsChoose.org courtesy of Service First Mortgage. This year we’ve helped 36 teachers with their loan while contributing $18,000 worth of donations to local classrooms!
We Get It. You’re Busy.
We all are, and that’s why Service First has made the loan process easier than ever. Our mobile app lets you fill out your application online, submit documents and check your loan status anytime you want. Not to mention we’re one of the industry leaders in speed, because nobody wants applying for a mortgage to take any longer than necessary.
The Best in Donorship
There are numerous organizations out there that specialize in giving back to the community. We decided to partner with the very best. Since its founding in 2001 DonorsChoose.org has become the top resource for teachers seeking to raise funds for classroom projects. Some of the highlights include:
- Over 1.4 million projects funded
- 34 million students helped and counting
- Charitable partnerships with leading corporations including Chevron, Google, and PNC
- Nearly a billion dollars raised on behalf of teachers
We know about financing homes, but no organization knows more about helping teachers than DonorsChoose.
So How Do I Qualify?
At Service First we like to keep things simple. No complicated forms, long questionnaires, or fine print.
- Hold a position in education that interacts with students 75% of the time (teacher, coach, counselor, librarian, nurse)
- Complete a loan application by August 31st.
- Receive a $500 donation to DonorsChoose once your loan closes. This donation can be used for your own projects or to help other teachers you know.
Not quite ready for a new home? You can still qualify through a refinance or rehabilitation loan.
Service First Cares
Our Annual Teacher Appreciation Campaign is a project of Service First Cares, our philanthropic committee dedicated to leading efforts that make an impact in the community. Teacher Appreciation is one of our most popular campaigns, with $104,000 in donations for 118 families over the past several years.
