Credit unions across New York are improving their communities and empowering people of all ages to become financially independent. And every step of the way, the New York Credit Union Foundation is supporting them.

By providing grants and other financial aid, the Foundation helps credit unions:

  • Teach critical financial skills to adults, youth and children
  • Enhance member service with new technologies and initiatives
  • Provide staff and volunteers with training opportunities
  • Distribute relief funds to those impacted by natural disasters

Each grant the Foundation provides helps strengthen the entire New York credit union community. So when you support the Foundation, you're doing much more than donating to a charity. You're investing in credit unions, their members and the powerful legacy of "people helping people."

The National Endowment for Financial Education High School Financial Planning Program is a free turnkey financial literacy program specifically focused on basic personal finance skills that are relevant to the lives of teens in grades 8-12.

The New York Credit Union Foundation is offering two separate training sessions for individuals interested in teaching the NEFE HSFPP in local schools and communities. Credit union staff, teachers and other community financial educators are encouraged to participate in the free training.

The first session will be held July 26 at the New York Credit Union Association’s headquarters in Albany.

The second session will be held Aug. 2 at The Summit FCU’s headquarters in Rochester.

During the training sessions, attendees will learn about the HSFPP curriculum, review the course materials, and find out how to obtain free classroom materials. Upon completing the training, participants will be prepared to take the program to the classroom or community and train others on its practical uses.
