Thank Goodness it's Funded!

TGIF Classroom Sponsorship

Del-One FCU was founded by state employees and continues to be the credit union of choice for many of Delaware’s educators.
We understand keeping your classroom supply cabinet fully-stocked can be costly, and sometimes the materials you need go beyond what the school’s budget may provide. That’s why Del-One designed this sponsorship with teachers in mind.

We want to help educators say “Thank Goodness It’s Funded!”
