Community Involvement

Making An Impact Since 1983

We love giving back to the community that supports us. That’s why we’ve partnered the following organizations:


Forest Area FCU has brought Banzai, a premium online financial literacy program, to educators and students to five schools in the area. These include Forest Area High School of Fife Lake, Kinglsey Area Highschool, Manton Consolidated High School, Kalkaska Highschool, and Mancelona High School. A total of 15 teachers and 880 students have been positively impacted by the program this year. Forest Area FCU is proud to be apart of Banzai and the impact is not going unnoticed, just hear what the teachers are saying!

“A special thank you to Forest Area FCU for sponsoring our financial literacy materials from Banzai. Our students are asking many insightful questions as we begin this unit on learning to manage money.” – Amy Bernthal, Teacher at Mancelona Middle School

Partners In Education

Forest Area FCU is a sponsor of the 2018/19 Manton Elementary GSRP class. A total of 18 children and 4 teachers are supported through the program, whose goal is to assist parents to be their first and most important teacher. Forest Area FCU is proud to support the class!
