Biz Kid$ fin ed grants available from NCUF
MADISON, Wis. (1/30/13)--Applications for Biz Kid$ Financial Education Grants are available from the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) through March 31.

"There is a need to improve the financial literacy skills of the youth in America, and Biz Kid$ is the perfect vehicle to address that need," said Danielle Brown, NCUF Biz Kid$ program coordinator. "We are looking to fund innovative programs that improve the financial education of youth through the use of the Biz Kid$ program and encourage you to apply."

Biz Kid$ teaches kids about money and business. The financial literacy initiative, launched in 2008, includes an award-winning TV series, free classroom curriculum, outreach activities and a website targeting children 9-16 years old. 

NCUF organizes fundraising and outreach for the program. A coalition of more than 290 credit unions and affiliates nationwide have helped fund Biz Kid$.

The Biz Kid$ Financial Education Grant objective is to engage the credit union movement in building students' financial literacy and economic education skills while increasing awareness and use of Biz Kid$. Funds may not be used as a cash donation to a third party.

Each project should incorporate Biz Kid$ materials.

Eligible applicants include credit unions, credit union service organizations, state credit union associations, state credit union foundations, and other organizations owned or controlled by credit unions.
