The donation will help support the NJTL’s Academic Creative Engagement (ACE) Initiative that is offered after school and during NJTL’s summer camp at Cadwalader Park. The program combines tennis instruction with academic enrichment in math, literacy and nutrition. College and career readiness skills, and technology education are also integrated into the program. McGraw-Hill FCU has stated that it is committed to education, especially when it comes to promoting financial literacy among young people. The credit union offers free seminars to New Jersey teachers responsible for educating students about personal finance. Being able to extend that commitment to education by supporting the NJTL’s ACE, and Nutrition, Education, Tennis and Support initiatives was a welcome opportunity for President/CEO Shawn Gilfedder. “The VOICE Foundation understands and values the importance that education can play in one’s future success,” Gilfedder said. “We are proud and honored to help fund initiatives within our community that benefit young people and promote academic enrichment.” During the grand opening ceremonies, there was a cookout lunch, a professional tennis exhibition featuring Chanda Rubin, Katrina Adams and players from the National Junior Tennis and Learning of Trenton, and photo opportunities with sponsors, past champions and children. Credit union employees volunteered their time to register attendees, assist with tennis clinics, and interact with the more than 300 guests of the NJTL. “Today’s young people are our future, so we look upon it as our duty to support the educational programs offered by the NJTL to the children of this community,” Gilfedder added. The contributions of organizations like McGraw-Hill FCU are critical to the continuation of NJTL’s programs and initiatives, said Dan Faber, NJTL executive director. “We are grateful for the credit union’s contribution and look forward to using the funding to promote our core values of healthy lifestyles, academic excellence, acceptance and responsible behavior,” Faber said.
