Want to easily help raise awareness of credit unions’ financial education activities as well as support them? Here is your chance.
The Nebraska Credit Union League has been working with the National Credit Union Foundation on “Financial Fitness Day” – a fundraising and awareness campaign taking place April 2, 2014. Americans spend months getting their physical health into shape as part of their New Year’s resolutions. Kicking off National Financial Literacy Month, Financial Fitness Day is dedicated to helping members get their financial health in shape.
It’s easy to participate! Just hold one (or more) of the following at your credit union organization on Financial Fitness Day – 4/1/15:
Jeans or Casual Day for staff
Bake Sale for staff and/or members
Deduct or Donate a Buck – Ask staff and/or members to consider a voluntary contribution of $1 or more either in cash as they complete their transaction and/or deducting from their checking or saving account as often as they choose.
By your participating, you’ll be raising funds for the National Credit Union Foundation and the Credit Union Foundation of Nebraska (CUFN) in support of their critical financial education initiatives, raising awareness of credit unions’ financial education activities and the importance of financial education.
All donations from credit unions for this campaign will be split 50/50 between the National Credit Union Foundation and the CUFN in support of their financial education initiatives to help consumers of all ages achieve financial freedom. For more information on the CUFN, please visit the foundation webpage.
