$12,500 Donated to Junior Achievement on behalf of bankESB

Easthampton, Massachusetts — February 16, 2024

Elan Charitable Giving Program Supports Credit Card Partners’ Communities

bankESB has made a $12,500 donation to the Junior Achievement of Western Massachusetts in partnership with the Elan Charitable Giving Program. Elan Financial Services, bankESB’s credit card solutions partner, launched their charitable giving program in 2022 and has donated over $1.7 million to charities on behalf of their credit card partners since the program’s start.

bankESB selected Junior Achievement of Western Massachusetts, whose proven lessons in financial literacy, work and career readiness, and entrepreneurship are shown to positively impact the lives of young people. They work to help young people discover what’s possible in their lives by connecting what they learn in school with life outside the classroom. They let them know it’s possible to invest in their future, to gain a better understanding of how the world works, and to pursue their dreams. bankESB is proud to be a long-time supporter of Junior Achievement and is thrilled to give back to such an impactful organization with a partner like Elan.

“We’re delighted to expand our reach this year to the communities of 15 credit union and 15 community bank partners,” said John Owens, Elan Credit Card General Manager, “From food insecurity and housing to animal shelters and youth arts programming, the Elan Charitable Giving program continues to support the needs of our partner’s communities.”
