Credit union organizations can now apply for a
Biz Kid$ Financial Education Grant from the National Credit Union
Foundation through March 31, 2017. The Foundation is
looking to distribute up to $75,000 in grant funds to credit union
organizations as part of this effort.
“We are excited to once again offer these Biz Kid$ 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.”
For the second year in a row, there will be a silent auction occurring in the Main Exhibit Hall during CUNA GAC beginning on Sunday, February 26 at 5PM and running through Tuesday, February 28 at 8:45AM. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Foundation to help improve more people's financial lives through credit unions.
