Youth Month 2024: Let’s Get Started Saving for Your Future

At Forest Area Federal Credit Union, we're dedicated to building stronger communities by empowering individuals of all ages to take control of their financial futures. This April, during Credit Union Youth Month, join us in celebrating and investing in the next generation.

Let’s Get Started with Bonus Offers This April

Throughout April 2024, we're offering an array of incentives and initiatives to encourage young individuals to become members and open a new Youth Account with us.

Here's what you can expect during Youth Month 2024:

1. Match Plus Promotion: We understand the importance of starting the journey toward financial wellness early in life. That's why we're enhancing our usual offer for new Youth Accounts during April. Typically, FAFCU will match the first $10 deposit made by a new youth member. However, during this special month, FAFCU is introducing our Match Plus promotion. For every new account opened, FAFCU will contribute $20 for the first $10 deposited by the new member, effectively doubling their initial deposit. It's our way of providing an extra boost to help kids get started on their savings journey.

2. Supporting Local Causes: At FAFCU, we believe in giving back to the communities we serve. In alignment with this commitment, for each new youth account opened in April, we'll donate $20 to Sleep in Heavenly Peace. This incredible non-profit organization works tirelessly to provide beds for children who would otherwise go without. By becoming a member of FAFCU, not only are you investing in your financial future, but you're also making a tangible difference in the lives of children in need in our area.

3. Prize Wheel Fun: Visit any of our Credit Union branches during April and experience the excitement of our prize wheel! Every new youth member will have the chance to spin the wheel and win a fun prize. From FAFCU swag to gift cards and more, it's our way of adding an extra element of joy to the process of joining our credit union family.

4. Weekly Educational Content: We recognize that financial literacy is crucial, especially at a young age. That's why FAFCU is committed to providing valuable educational resources throughout April. Each week, we'll be sharing informative content online to help parents teach their kids about money management, budgeting, saving, and the benefits of being a member of a credit union. These resources will empower families to make informed financial decisions and set the stage for a lifetime of financial success.
