In early 2011, the New Jersey Credit Union Foundation entered into a partnership with the New Jersey Coalition for Financial Education (NJCFE) on behalf of all New Jersey credit unions.

NJCFE is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving the personal financial literacy of New Jersey's citizens by promoting and teaching financial education to residents of all ages. NJCFE consists of representatives of government agencies, schools, businesses and nonprofit organizations that provide financial education and related services.

Like credit unions, NJCFE’s core mission is financial literacy. It works in conjunction with the Department of Education, Department of Banking, the United Way, and various other organizations to enhance financial literacy in the state through webinars, teacher training, job fairs, affordable housing programs, and more.

As a NJCFE Sustaining Partner Sponsoring organization, the NJ Credit Union Foundation is uniquely positioned as a high profile and critical linchpin in NJCFE’s initiatives to further financial literacy and assume a leadership role within the Coalition.

The partnership with the NJ CU Foundation directly supports the NJCFE's operations, webinars, job fairs, affordable housing programs, and financial literacy symposium.
