The VR-bank oberfranken mitte’s annual donation to the schools in the kronach area, where it is possible to obtain a higher degree than the quali, has already become a tradition.
Division director hans-jurgen mohrle was pleased to be able to support a wide variety of measures and purchases at schools again this year. "We owe the available funds to our loyal "profit savers", mohrle was quoted as handing over the donation checks to the representatives of the nine recipient schools together with the heads of the business units thomas kolb (kronach main office), rene borke (pressig) and frank wicklein (steinbach/wald). Profit savings is a clever combination of savings and lottery. Four euros are saved from the five-euro monthly lottery ticket. One euro is used for the raffle, where there are great prizes to be won. Just a short time ago, a winner from the pressig branch was able to enjoy a main prize of 10,000 euros. 25 cents of every ticket is used to support charitable and benevolent institutions, facilities and associations – in keeping with the cooperative spirit of the founder of the raiffeisengenossenschaft, friedrich wilhelm raiffeisen. The cooperative concept is also what distinguishes his bank from other credit institutions. Unlike other banks, the VR bank pays a dividend to its customers. In this context, mohrle pointed out that anyone can become a member of the VR bank.
