Be the Hero in your Hometown

With Banzai, you will get plenty of recognition from teachers and students. But what about from the community? We employ a staff of PR professionals to do one thing: promote your story to the local press.

Dozens of newspapers and TV stations nationwide have highlighted Banzai's credit union and bank partners. We work directly with reporters in your area, and arrange opportunities for them to meet teachers and students who love Banzai.

Personal introduction

Meet them Face to Face

Banzai introduces you to teachers — in person. When they sign up at your co-branded website, we'll send Banzai's curriculum package to you, not the teacher. We give you the teacher's name, email address, school, and phone number. They know to await your contact, and are looking forward to receiving the program directly from you.

Serendipity

We designed Banzai to foster serendipity — happy surprises and chance opportunities. By meeting teachers face to face you will make new, lasting relationships in the school system. We encourage you be creative as Banzai introduces you to local educators.

Hello Shannon,
we just received our Banzai Life Scenarios books and couldn't be happier or more appreciative. Last year we enjoyed the lessons so much that some of the students couldn't wait to do them again. Thank you Greylock Federal and Banzai for the opportunity to continue this valuable program in our school. Happy Holidays!

Dear EECU Sponsors,
I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how much my students are enjoying and learning from the Banzai program. Without this program some of the questions, ideas, and vocabulary would not come up in a normal conversation of instructions. When students need to solve situations independently, it becomes more real for them. Thank you for sponsoring the Banzai program for our school.
Sincerely,
Cathy Richter

I cannot thank Altra Federal Credit Union enough for their generous donation of Life Scenario books to my classroom. The students are enjoying all of the activities and it is giving them an outlook of possibilities for the future. This was a great way to keep my students very involved with technology and prepare them for the future. Thank you again!

Community West Credit Union,

Thanks so much for providing the Banzai Banking material and opportunity for my students. With very limited resources for schools these days, quality curriculum, especially "free" quality curriculum is really hard to come by and business support of our schools is genuinely appreciated. Thanks again for your efforts in helping our kids become financially responsible young adults.

Your area of exclusivity is flexible. You can customize it by city or county. For as long as you are a Banzai partner, no bank or credit union will encroach on your exclusive area.

And...it's free.

Yep, we do outreach for you. We've successfully signed up over 6,000 teachers in targeted credit union and bank markets. We specialize in promoting your financial literacy program, so you don't have to. So you can keep doing what you do best — growing your organization.

Be The Hero

Across the U.S., teachers have an "unfunded mandate" to teach financial literacy. Lacking budgets, they're discovering it's impossible to obtain quality teaching resources. Sure, there are free resources on the internet. But manuals require intense teacher preparation, and they cannot promote change.

With Banzai, you are uniquely situated to help. Banzai's interactive software is engaging and personal. It actually helps them manage their own money. And for educators, Banzai aligns to your state's Standards Of Learning.

By partnering with Banzai, teachers will seek your participation. Be the hero.
