Hold a Financial Fitness Day on April 1 & Raise Funds for Financial Ed

The Northwest Credit Union Association has been working with the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) on “Financial Fitness Day” – a fundraising and awareness campaign taking place April 1, 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 – 4/1/15:

  • Jeans or Casual Day for staff
  • Host a 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.

By your participating, you’ll be raising funds for the NCUF and the Northwest Credit Union Foundation (NWCUF) 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 the National Credit Union Foundation and the NWCUF in support of their financial education initiatives to help consumers of all ages achieve financial freedom.

The NWCUF supports a range of financial education initiatives across the Northwest, including Financial Reality Fairs and Junior Achievement. Learn more about the NWCUF and how you can access grants and scholarships by clicking here.
