Check out our Financial Literacy Activities.
Showing our commitment to the education community and the members we serve is an essential part of who we are. UECU has partnered with schools in the communities of our branches to work together on projects and activities that will support the efforts of faculty and students. In April we celebrate Financial Literacy Month in all partner schools to improve the financial literacy skills of the students and their parents. We recognize that financial literacy at a young age sets the ground work for financial savvy adults. School partners include: Aquila Elementary School, Eastview High School, Normandale Hills Elementary School, Sand Creek Elementary School, and Woodbury Middle School.
