Renovate to Educate

Tell us about your dream classroom. Let us handle the rest.

Addition Financial appreciates the work Central Florida teachers perform each year. We also understand the financial demand that teaching our students can present for public school teachers. As a way of saying thank you, Addition Financial will renovate three selected teachers’ classrooms during the summer 2021.
