Teachers Federal Credit Union, one of the country’s largest credit unions, has partnered with WMHO in support of our education outreach programs. Robert G. Allen, CEO/President of TFCU, recently presented a $5,000 check to Gloria D. Rocchio, President of The Ward Melville Heritage Organization at The Brewster House, one of the historic sites it owns, maintains and interprets.

tfcu2TFCU has elected to underwrite six (6) on-site and six (6) distance learning programs for students attending schools within communities where its branches are located. Both on-site and distance learning programs will be scheduled at The Brewster House or The Thompson House in East Setauket and an on-site program at the Stony Brook Grist Mill.

The program fees will be covered in part by the grant from TFCU and are all aligned to Common Core and New York State Learning Standards. Programs are taught by qualified instructors and are BOCES Arts-In-Education reimbursable. The schools will pay for bus service, a portion of which will be reimbursed by BOCES.
