Credit Unions Invited to Hold a "Financially Fit Day" on April 3
In the spirit of cooperation, the Texas Credit Union Foundation (TCUF) and the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) have collaborated to develop a Credit Unions Support Financial Education initiative.
The purpose of the initiative is two-fold:
Credit unions participating in this event would have to commit to either (or both) of the following activities to fundraise among staff and members:
Fundraising could be as simple as a jeans or casual day for staff, but additional ideas are included in the attached toolkit or via the campaign website, www.financialeducation.coop. Also included on the website are other campaign resources such as optional pledge forms, sample newsletter articles, sign-up sheets, stickers, flyers, statement stuffer, wall pin-up templates, a YouTube video, web buttons, and more.
Credit unions are also encouraged to leverage this campaign as part of a broader appeal to staff and members around financial education. This could include things such as raising awareness of educational offerings by the credit union, the optional campaign pledges, financial education tips, and more.
Donations made as part of the initiative will be split 50/50 between NCUF and the Texas Credit Union Foundation. Donations can also be made via the campaign website.
If you have any questions, please contact Courtney Moran, TCUF Executive Director, at (800) 953-TCUF (8283) or email@example.com. Again, please visit the campaign website listed above for much more information!
