COLUMBUS, Ohio (1/20/10)--The Ohio Credit Union Foundation said it awarded grants totaling $213,000 in 2009, with a record number designated for financial education programs and initiatives--the foundation’s primary area of focus. More than $139,000 was awarded for financial education projects, including:
* A distance learning Biz Kid$ workshop for educators; * Workshops based on the Credit Union National Association’s Home and Family Finance Radio show; * Production of a financial education board game; and * Two reality day events with more than 900 high school students participating.
Also, 39 professional development grants, totaling more than $41,000, helped credit union staff and volunteers receive training (eLumination Newsletter, Jan. 13). About $15,000 in disaster relief training helped credit union employees and members affected by brushfires in Australia and flooding in El Salvador. And $5,000 supported a modest-means outreach initiative in Northwest Ohio. The foundation board of trustees established a $195,000 fundraising goal for 2010.
