MADISON, Wis. – With more credit unions answering the call of financial literacy, CUES has launched the Financial Literacy Clearinghouse. “We in the credit union movement are here because we want to make a difference. We can make a positive impact on our members’ lives by teaching them how to make wise monetary choices,” said Mickey Wilson, CUES chairman and Greater Warren Community FCU President. “The Financial Literacy Clearinghouse helps those in the movement who are creating programs to help their members at any stage of life; we’ve included information for programs geared toward adults as well as children.” The Financial Literacy Clearinghouse, which can be found at, provides links to offerings from organizations like the National Endowment for Financial Education and programs sponsored by trade associations. Designed as a one-stop site for free educational resources, the clearinghouse also offers “ready-to-go programs” shared by credit unions that have developed their own curriculums. The programs can be used as-is or simply as a starting point for inspiration. “Many consumers don’t understand the basics of finance, such as the best way to save for the future, keep a good credit rating, or clean up bad credit. It’s just good business for us to help them understand the importance of fiscal responsibility in their lives,” said CUES President/CEO Fred Johnson. Credit unions interested in sharing their successful education programs and efforts can submit their stories to CUES Vice President/Publications Mary Arnold at [email protected].
