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. Participate in Financial Fitness Day and raise funds for the National Credit Union Foundation and state credit union foundations in support of their critical financial education initiatives, raise awareness of credit unions’ financial education activities and the importance of financial education.
To participate, hold one (or more) of the following fundraisers at your credit union organization on Financial Fitness Day - 4/1/15:
- Jeans or Casual Day for staff
- 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.
All donations will be split 50/50 between NCUF and the state CU foundation in which the donation was made. The donation can be made at the branch which the CU will collect and send to NCUF, or it can be done online at the official campaign website, financialfitnessday.com.
Toolkit, sample campaign materials and templates, donation form and much more is at financialfitnessday.com.
