Financial education is a core value of the Credit Union Movement and April is Financial Literacy Month!
The Foundation is helping MD & DC credit unions celebrate while helping support important programs dedicated to financial self-sufficiency:
To date, the Foundation has awarded over $405,000 in financial literacy grants.
To help the Foundation continue their financial literacy efforts, credit unions are being asked to choose one week in April to highlight financial education and invite staff and members to make a small donation to support financial literacy efforts.
Credit unions can request their free Financial Literacy Month promotion kits that include lobby posters, individual contributor signs, and “I Support Financial Literacy” stickers for participants.
Here’s all you do:
At the end of your Financial Literacy Month observance, forward your donations to the Foundation where they will enable grants and programs.
