Helping credit unions celebrate financial capability, youth & more in April

April marks an important month for credit unions as we all celebrate National Credit Union Youth Month and National Financial Capability Month. This provides a great opportunity for organizations to showcase the credit union difference by going above and beyond to provide financial education to staff, members, and communities.

Your Foundation is here to help you celebrate this month with a few articles full of ideas by Executive Director Gigi Hyland. The first article was featured on CUInsight and explains “Why Every Month Should be Financial Capability Month“.
