Camp Hill, Pa. – LeTort Trust, through their Atgooth Foundation, gave $15,000 in support of Financial Literacy to Junior Achievement of South Central Pennsylvania. Junior Achievement (JA) empowers young people to own their future economic success by participating in a variety of financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship programs throughout the year. JA programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.

In 2011, LeTort founded the Atgooth Foundation, a non-profit subsidiary, with the goal of being a catalyst for change in the communities they serve. Over the years, LeTort has donated 5% of annual profits to charitable organizations in the Central Pennsylvania market area.

“Junior Achievement programs help students prepare for their futures with real world learning experiences,” said Dan Eichelberger, President of Atgooth Foundation. “One of our primary areas of focus at Atgooth Foundation is to further initiatives that support the educational needs of youth interested in business, finance and entrepreneurship. The programs offered by Junior Achievement are strategically aligned with the interests and intentions of our charitable foundation,” stated Dan.

LeTort Trust is a private Trust Company, providing comprehensive Qualified Retirement Plan and Wealth Management services, designed for the complex financial needs of businesses, institutions and individuals.
