Pa. foundation approves two fin-lit grants
HARRISBURG, Pa. (8/30/12)--The Pennsylvania Credit Union Foundation Board recently approved two $8,000 grants to fund financial literacy efforts throughout the state.

A grant to the Pennsylvania Cable Network (PCN) is a cooperative initiative between the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association (PCUA) and the foundation to offer four town hall meetings in 2012 and 2013 on tax preparation, financial management, business start-ups and retirement issues (Life is a Highway Aug. 27).

Through another grant to Voz Latina Central magazine, the PCUA will offer 10 financial literacy "advertorials" in English and Spanish to nearly 130,000 Hispanic readers in 10 central Pennsylvania counties.

Foundation Chairman Ray Brunner praised the board of directors for "expanding credit union financial literacy initiatives from local communities to those which encompass the entire state."
