Treadway Elem Renovation Reveal

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 2022.

Altamonte Elementary 2019 Renovation

Public school teachers are often creative, idealistic, individuals with big imaginations and bigger hearts. Let us know what your dream classroom looks like and how a renovation will help support your goal of teaching your students. Go ahead, dream big.
