April is Financial Literacy Month – Let’s Celebrate!
Financial education is the premier core value of the Credit Union Movement and April is the perfect time for you to share your support for financial literacy with your members, staff, and the communities you serve.
Celebrate Financial Literacy Month at your credit union and help support these important programs.
Financial literacy grants to credit unions
The Millionaire’s Club high school program
Free Quicken™ personal finance software
Support for community financial fitness days
The Foundation has awarded $500,000+ in financial literacy grants and programs.
Please Help Keep These Programs Alive!
Here’s how you can celebrate Financial Literacy Month, involve your members and staff, and have fun doing it –
Designate all or a portion of April as your credit union’s Financial Literacy Month observance.
Inform your staff about the idea, especially frontline staff who work directly with members.
Plan a financial literacy offering for your members and/or community. For help, visit cufound.org/finlit-grant
Ask your staff to invite every member they serve to support the Foundation’s financial literacy programs. “Would you like to make a donation in support of financial literacy?” Suggest a donation as small as $1.
Donors receive a donor sticker or a donor sign that they add their name(s) to and display in your lobby area(s).
At the end of your Financial Literacy Month observance, forward the donations to the Foundation where they will be used for local financial education programs.
