Eat cupcakes in your jeans, raise money for fin. ed.
MADISON, Wis. (3/25/14)--The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) is inviting credit union organizations to kick off  National Financial Literacy Month April 2 with "Financial Fitness Day" fundraiser.
 
The initiative will raise funds for NCUF and state credit union foundations in support of their financial education initiatives.
 
"Americans spend months getting their physical health into shape as part of their New Year's resolutions," said Danielle Brown, NCUF director of development and donor relations. "Kicking off National Financial Literacy Month in April, Financial Fitness Day is dedicated to helping members get their financial health in shape. Credit unions are perfectly suited to do so and we hope your organization will hold a fundraiser such as a casual day on April 2 to support these efforts."
 
To participate, credit union organizations can hold one or more of the following fundraisers on April 2:
  • Jeans or casual day for staff;
  • Bake sale--cookies, cupcakes, banana bread, you name it--for staff and/or members;
  • Deduct or donate a buck--Ask staff and/or members to consider a voluntary contribution of $1 or more either in cash as they complete their transaction and/or deducting from their checking or saving account as often as they choose.
The campaign website where donations can be made includes campaign resources such as additional fundraising ideas, sample newsletter articles, sign-up sheets, stickers, flyers, statement stuffers, wall pin-up templates, sample tweets and web buttons.

Donations made as part of the initiative will be split evenly between NCUF and the state credit union foundation, in which the donation was made.
