Want to easily help raise awareness of credit unions’ financial education activities as well as support them? Here is your chance!

The New Jersey Credit Union League and New Jersey Credit Union Foundation have been working with the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) 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 - 4/2/14:

  • 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.

Click here to download a toolkit and learn more about how you can participate, download campaign materials and get fundraising ideas.

By your participating, you’ll be raising funds for the National Credit Union Foundation and the NJ CU Foundation 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 NCUF and the NJ CU Foundation in support of their financial education initiatives, including the popular Financial Reality Fair program and the New Jersey Coalition for Financial Education (NJCFE) partnership.
