Foundation Announces Next Round of Biz Kids Grants

Grants extend reach of award-winning financial literacy series.

Credit union organizations can now apply for a Biz Kid$ Financial Education Grant from the National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation) through March 31, 2017. The Foundation is looking to distribute up to $75,000 in grant funds to credit union organizations as part of this effort.

The application can be found here or by visiting ncuf.coop/bkgrants.

“We are excited to once again offer these Biz Kid$ Financial Education Grants to improve the financial futures of the next generation through the award-winning Biz Kid$ program,” said Danielle Brown, the Foundation’s Director of Development & Donor Relations. “In the past five years we’ve distributed these grants, we have seen credit union organizations find creative ways to use the Biz Kid$ program. We look forward to seeing the impact of these new grants over the next year.”

The Foundation has been highlighting Biz Kid$ grantees that have been leveraging Biz Kid$ and its curriculum to build students financial literacy and economic education skills. Some examples include:

  • Limestone FCU used Biz Kid$ at their Financial Fitness Summer Camps to provide free financial education for their local youth.
  • Natco Credit Union sponsored a Biz Kid$ financial education program at their local Boys and Girls Club to help the youth in their community.
