Miracle Jeans Day!

Please go to our link here to donate or stop by the credit union to help us reach our goal! The CFCU staff will be going casual for the kids on September 9th, in support of CU4kids!

Credit Unions for Kids is the brand under which America’s Credit Unions raise funds for their local children’s hospital. Over the past 23 years, credit unions have raised an incredible $185 million. This has allowed credit unions to make an immense impact on millions of children every single year. 100% of the donations go directly to the children’s hospital in our community.

Budget Word of the Month: Youth Savings

Here are a couple of ways we can empower our youth to save: 
  • Develop healthy financial habits early
    • Long-term healthy money habits begin to develop in childhood, as early as preschool.
  • Create opportunities to save regularly
    •  Access to financial education programs and savings accounts provides opportunities to develop positive long-term financial behaviors.
  • Take a hands-on approach 
    • Students who at an early age participate in financial education programs that include real-world financial experiences are more likely to develop positive attitudes about money.

Learn more about these ways to empower our youth to save here!
