Teaming Up to Expand Member Benefits to both Organizations
HAWTHORNE, CA—SkyOne Federal Credit Union and California State PTA are teaming up to expand member benefits to both groups.
SkyOne, a local not-for-profit financial cooperative, provides members with free tools such as financial education and affordable banking services to help them manage finances and save for the future.
The 750,000-member strong California State PTA is the California chapter of the National Parent Teacher Association, the largest children’s advocacy association in America.
“We’re excited about furthering California State PTA’s mission to positively impact the lives of all children and families,” said Joseph Whitaker, SkyOne’s President and CEO. “PTA has been an essential part of the education system for 120 years, and this collaboration is now more meaningful than ever.”
“There is great synergy between SkyOne and California State PTA, and we are thrilled to start this partnership,” said Celia Jaffe, President of California State PTA. “Not only will California State PTA members benefit from the excellent range of financial services and educational tools offered by SkyOne, but SkyOne members and their children will be able to reap the many benefits of joining their local PTA.”
Each organization has agreed to extend benefits to the other’s membership base. SkyOne will provide its members with a one-year California State PTA membership, and in turn, California State PTA members can join SkyOne and enjoy numerous benefits including easy access to deposits with thousands of ATMs and shared branches nationwide; a live call center; no-fee early paycheck arrival via direct deposit; low nuisance fees; and competitive rates on loans and savings.
In addition, any potential member who would like to join SkyOne but would not otherwise qualify can join California State PTA and become a member of SkyOne.
“It’s important to SkyOne to promote and advance the extraordinary work California State PTA is doing,” said Shannon Doiron, SkyOne’s Chief Marketing Officer. “By partnering with California State PTA to share benefits, our members will be helping to support and sustain schools, families, and communities all over California.”
Both companies expect to increase brand awareness as they promote each other through their websites, membership packets, and community events.
