Let Us Know How You’re Celebrating!

National Financial Literacy Month kicks off today! Credit unions throughout the country have a loaded schedule of events and programs planned to demonstrate their prowess in financial education, a critical component of the credit union movement year-round.

In addition to the month-long celebration, April 5-12 is Money Smart Week, a public awareness campaign designed to help consumers of all shapes and sizes better manage their financial situations.

Later this month will bring National Credit Union Youth Week, April 20-26, when kids will be encouraged to set up savings accounts and learn the ins and outs of managing money.

And tomorrow, April 2nd, is “Financial Fitness Day”, a fundraising and awareness campaign that raises 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. 

Let the League know how your credit union is getting involved this month. Send photos and descriptions of your events, celebrations, marketing materials, etc. to news@njcul.org. And happy Financial Literacy Month to all!
