Project Piggy Bank is a partnership between Junior Achievement of East Tennessee and local businesses and financial institutions. The main focus of this project is to raise awareness and resources for Junior Achievement programming throughout our East Tennessee region. In this partnership, your organization would purchase a white piggy bank for $100. Then it is up to you to decorate or brand it to your liking. Then you collect donations for JA—fill up your bank! The money will help Junior Achievement of East Tennessee reach more local children with JA programs.
The second part of the project is exposure for your organization. Each piggy bank purchase is eligible to be entered into an online photo contest where you can encourage your Facebook fans and customers to go online and vote for your piggy bank! There will be prizes for “People’s Choice” best decorated as well as for the most money raised in your piggy banks—all this will showcase that you are investing in our area’s youth! You can go to our Facebook page to see some of the pigs that have already been decorated! https://www.facebook.com/JAEastTN?ref=hl We have several financial institutions that are going to do branch to branch competitions as well as be entered into our prizes which are Chick-Fil-A catering packages—it is really just something that people can have fun with while supporting financial literacy.
