Start Your Heroic Journey
Every eligible school has their own webpage, on this site. Use the "FIND SCHOOL" feature to find your school’s page. If you cannot find it email email@example.com. Once you find your school's page, click vote and sign up for email and text so your school will earn points. If you are not already a member join now for even more points. If you open your account online, we will deposit $5 in your account. Remember to put your school down as the Heroes of Education school you are supporting. You do not have to join Class Act to help your school but you will earn a lot more points if you do.
Copy your school's URL and share it on social media, email, and text. Every time a new person visits your school's page a point is earned. Here is an example caption. "Please help my school win up to $15,000 by visiting my school's Heroes of Education page. We could really use this for updates on our computer lab."
The schools that perform the best have that one person or team that is dedicated to winning. By uploading a video, pictures, and a mission statement to your Heroes of Education page, you will make it a special place that gets your message out to thousands of supporters. If you want to take ownership of your school's page fill out the Heroes Contact Form in the "Contact Us" section. Downloadable resources can be found below, in Heroes of Education Utility Belt.
A dedicated Class Act branch manager has been assigned to your school. They are like your campaign manager. Your Class Act Coach will show you the best strategies and be on call to help you navigate through the program. There are a lot of opportunities and your school is not alone in this. Class Act is dedicated to helping your school win big! Set up a meeting with your Class Act Coach my filling out the Heroes Contact form in the "Contact Us" page.
A mass communication to your staff and parents is essential! A school of 300 students has the potential of earning 516,000 points, which is worth $500, just by engaging their immediate community (staff and parents). Click below, in the Heroes of Education Utility Belt, to download The Heroes Email Template. Your Class Act Coach can help you with this.
By far, the best way to earn points is to join the credit union and use its lending products. For example, refinancing a car loan can be equivalent to engaging around 100 people to visit, sign up email and text. Besides the fact Class Act will directly benefit your school, you will get great rates on lending and savings. You will be joining a community that has been driven to support our schools and build members financial strength for over 60 years.
The Heroes of Education program was originally created in 2017 by Class Act Federal Credit Union to highlight the passion, drive, and knowledge of educators. The program has evolved to give schools a channel to share their message and fundraise. Through the Heroes of Education program, Class Act FCU will grow its membership and services while assisting schools in their needs. Cash “Heroes Grants" are distributed for anything from chrome books, playground equipment to renovations of a teachers lounge.
