NCUF Shines Spotlight on Education
Credit unions’ financial education efforts are making a difference and the National Credit Union Foundation is sharing that information state-by-state.
Three state pages were recently released by NCUF for Delaware, Illinois and Kansas.
Pages were put together from data collected by NCUF for its “2011 Credit Union Member Education Inventory.”
Sponsored by state credit union leagues and NCUF’s REAL Solutions program, the resulting report, “Credit Unions: Focused on Financial Capability Across the Nation,” was designed to give each league a section that contains state-specific data and comparisons to national figures.
The report will be accessible to participating credit unions at no charge through the REAL Solutions Impact Center.
In addition, a companion tool detailing member financial education/counseling products and credit union best practices will be published in conjunction with the report.
“While the information collected so far is certainly impressive on its own, it is still important to gather more data,” said Lois Kitsch, national program director at NCUF. “Once more credit unions complete our survey, we’ll know the true impact our industry has across America through our numerous financial education efforts.”
