Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union Releases New Financial Education Resource
LOWELL, MA — Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union is pleased to announce that it has launched a new online financial education resource that will allow the Credit Union to better serve those seeking to improve their understanding of finance as well as their knowledge of the financial marketplace.
The innovative website – www.moneystrongforlife.org – is designed to serve as the primary way in which members of the community, such as teachers, Brownie leaders, day-care providers, and non-profit organizations, seek assistance from Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union’s Community Education department. At any time and on any day, they can go to the website to submit a request for an in-school financial lesson, learn more about our bank at school program or sign up for various financial workshops and seminars.
Jeanne D’Arc employees are proud to stand beside members of the region’s many community groups, nonprofit organizations and educational institutions to help them learn important financial tools that they can then share with others.
“Financial education has always been the cornerstone of our philosophy of people helping people,” said Mark S. Cochran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Jeanne D’Arc Credit Union. “The MoneyStrong For Life website is a way for us to make it easier for people to gain the financial knowledge that will not only help them but also allow them to help others.”
The website also offers a number of tools and tips that can assist users in making smart financial choices, such as learning how to track expenses, using credit wisely, guarding against fraud, working toward a high credit score, and even writing a check.
