We are proud of our Home Office teammates and individual donors who have graciously contributed their time, energy and money to help Primerica continue to lead in fundraising efforts for the 2019 Relay for Life in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

Fundraisers this year included cookouts, auctions, raffles, bake sales, book sales, bingo, professional headshots, an option to donate cash to wear jeans to work, and many other creative ways our Home Office teammates came up with to raise money to find a cure.

After the close of the Relay for Life event, held May 9-10 at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds, more than $114,000 was raised by Primerica teams alone. We were #1 in 2018 and Primerica wants to claim the #1 fundraising title again in 2019!

Click here to support the Primerica Relay For Life team. Online donations will be accepted through August 1.

If you’re in the club of indebted adults with college degrees, rest assured you’re one of the popular people. The number of college grads with student loan debt is now around 70 percent – and the average debt someone graduates with is close to $30,000, comprised of both private and federal loans.1

But while facing the future with all that debt can be soul-crushing, (one recent survey found that more than a third of college grads with loans regret taking them out),2 there are ways to stay optimistic about the future.

Here are three ways to take action and rethink your student loan debt:

  • Apply for income-based repayment. Contact your lender and inquire about a fixed monthly payment that is based on your annual take-home salary. This can give breathing room to come up with a plan to aggressively tackle the debt over time.
  • Investigate your eligibility for student loan forgiveness. There are a number of student loan forgiveness programs available for people who work in various job sectors. These are mostly arenas where you work with the public, like education, government, non-profits, law, medicine, etc. There are also forgiveness programs available for people facing long-term disabilities or those who cannot work.
  • Consider entrepreneurism with a proven system. While it can be argued that starting a business isn’t ideal for people with student loan debt because of risks and overhead costs, finding the right opportunity with a well-established company where there is room for growth can be the solution to earning a little extra money towards paying down debt, and other financial goals. Primerica, for instance, offers part-time opportunities.*

The Primerica Foundation was honored to take part in a special event Thursday celebrating the completion of the John F. Kennedy Park renovation project in Atlanta’s Historic Westside!

Primerica – along with the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, the NFL Foundation, and the Chick-fil-A Foundation – provided funding to help renovate and revitalize a wonderful community space just a short distance away from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium where the big game will be played on Sunday. 

John F. Kennedy Park is adjacent to the Hollis Innovation Academy, and it is central to the Westside neighborhoods. Students from the Academy and the community will be able to enjoy the athletic field and have a safe place for exercise and outdoor activities.

“In keeping with Primerica’s practice of giving back to the communities where we live and work, we are thrilled to have had the opportunity to contribute to an improvement project designed to foster play and healthy lifestyles for years to come,” said Primerica President Peter Schneider. “Our commitment to changing lives underscores everything we do – from the financial education and products we provide our clients to the many thousands of people we help each year through The Primerica Foundation.”

During the event, speakers included Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, who reminisced about taking ballet lessons as a child in the neighborhood; Arthur Blank, owner of the Atlanta Falcons, who noted that the park was one of many efforts being made by Atlanta leaders to enhance the Westside; and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who spoke about making meaningful improvements in the Atlanta community that will last for years to come.
