Michigan foundation OKs 5000 grant to BizKid
LANSING, Mich. (4/14/09)--The Michigan Credit Union Foundation Board of Trustees has approved a $5,000 grant for the PBS Biz Kid$ financial education program as part of the foundation's efforts to support financial literacy programs. "BizKid$ is a quality, worthwhile tool for financial education outreach and something the foundation wanted to support," said Patrick LaPine, executive vice president of the Michigan Credit Union League (Michigan Monitor April 13). The program, underwritten by America's credit unions for the past three years, promotes financial literacy to middle- and high school-age students and is aired in 97% of the U.S. public television market. "In this economy it's imperative to continue to contribute financially to programs that are important in the long-run, and this is an example of something that can be very helpful for credit unions in their financial literacy efforts," LaPine said.
