April 1: Financial Fitness Day Helps Raise Funds for Financial Ed

Want to easily help raise awareness of credit unions’ financial education activities, as well as support them? Here's your chance.

The Missouri Credit Union Charitable Foundation (MCUCF) has been working with the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) on “Financial Fitness Day” - a fundraising and awareness campaign taking place April 1, 2015. 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. 

"We're excited to partner with the National Credit Union Foundation for Financial Fitness Day. It's a great opportunity to highlight the importance of financial literacy and credit unions' dedication to strengthening the financial wellbeing of their communities," says Maria Langston, MCUCF's executive director. "Thank you in advance to everyone who will be participating–they're helping MCUCF continue its support of credit unions and their financial education efforts."

It’s easy to participate! Just hold one (or more) of the following at your credit union on Financial Fitness Day, April 1, 2015:

  • Jeans or Casual Day
  • Bake Sale
  • Deduct or Donate a Buck

By participating, you’ll raise funds for MCUCF and NCUF in support of their critical financial education initiatives, raising awareness of credit unions’ financial education activities and the importance of financial education. MCUCF supports Missouri's credit unions in their efforts to better serve their communities. It also offers resources that help credit unions and their staffers grow, both professionally and operationally. Led by a board of directors of credit union executives from across the state of Missouri, MCUCF is dedicated to providing education and charitable opportunities to support financial literacy projects, disaster relief programs, and credit union and community development initiatives.

All donations from credit unions for this campaign will be split 50/50 between MCUCF and NCUF in support of their financial education initiatives to help consumers of all ages achieve financial freedom.
