Grow Financial Foundation Gives Back During the Season of Giving
The mission of the Grow Financial Foundation is to encourage and support the health and wellness of individuals and organizations within the communities the credit union serves through financial, educational, social, physical and mental health strategies. In a year like 2020 that has seen food insecurity and joblessness become even more prevalent, they knew they needed to step up and help with one more donation drive this year. Learn more about how they’re serving our communities during the season of giving.
According to Feeding America, more than 80 percent, or 4 in 5, food banks are serving more people now than they did a year ago, so it was important that they made as big an impact as possible, and in both our Tampa Bay and South Carolina communities.
On a Mission to Give
Lisa Wolf, VP of Compliance at Grow, suggested Metropolitan Ministries, Inc., a local organization she is involved with through her participation in LAMPlighters, another 501(c)(3) comprised of Tampa Bay area women, to the Grow Financial Foundation as an organization that could use their help. So, they got a list of the most-needed items from Metropolitan Ministries as well as Lowcountry C.A.R.E.S. Ministries and Harvest Hope in South Carolina and sponsored a food and hygiene products drive to support the efforts of these three organizations.
“The need has been great, but our community is greater. With the help of the community, we have been able to meet these unprecedented challenges as they’ve come. The Grow Financial Foundation came through in a huge way in time for our holiday distribution … to the tune of a half-ton of food and 500 hygiene items,” shared Patrick Davis, Sr. Manager of Community Relations for Metropolitan Ministries.
It was apparent that the generosity of our members and team members knows no bounds as they once again gave back to our communities in a great way during the season of giving. Wolf summed up the spirit of giving so perfectly, “To me, giving back to the community means that I made a difference in someone’s life. Giving back is a great way to know your community and its citizens.”
How to Find Your Routing & Account Numbers
When you make a payment online, by phone or on a mobile device, you may be asked for our routing number and your checking account number. Credit unions and banks use these numbers to identify accounts and make sure money gets where it’s supposed to be. You’ll also need to provide your routing and checking account numbers for:
- Direct deposits
- Electronic checks
- Military allotments
- Wire transfers
Where to Find Your Routing & Checking Account Numbers
Your personal checks include both our routing number and your account number, as shown on the Grow check example below.
Don’t have a Grow check? No worries.
Visit any Grow store and ask for a Direct Deposit Form. It lists both your routing number and checking account number.
Making a Loan Payment
When it comes to making payments, we try to make it as painless as possible to pay your loan every month. We have several different ways to pay, including convenient online options.
You have two ways to pay online by transferring funds from another bank or credit union.
- Grow Online Banking (Preferred payment method for any loan)
This is the simplest way to pay your loan. You can make one-time payments or set up automatic recurring payments in Grow Online Banking. Once you log in, select “Transfer/Payments” from the menu. If you’re not enrolled in Grow Online Banking yet, you can set up your account in just a few minutes.
- Debit Card or ACH (Available for auto, personal loans and HELOCs)
Note: ACH and debit card payments are not available for credit cards or most mortgages, except HELOCs.
We accept ACH payments with no additional fees or Mastercard® and Visa® debit cards with a convenience fee of $4.95. To get started with an online ACH or debit card payment, select Pay Now below.
Pay by Mail
You can also pay any Grow loan by check through the mail. Please remember to include your account number and Grow loan number on the check. (For credit card payments, please do not write your 16-digit credit card number on the check, which can cause a delay in processing the payment.)
