Youth Accounts

Dannemora Federal Credit Union recognizes the need to instill a strong understanding of where money comes from, what we have to do to earn it, and how it should be saved and spent, at an early age.

Our Youth Accounts for those under 18 help our young members develop a habit of saving while encouraging him or her to reach savings goals.

All of our youth accounts get a special gift with new account!

Great Grades Program

Our young savers have the opportunity to earn extra cash simply for doing well in school!

Our Great Grades program offers students in grades K-12 the opportunity to submit their report card, each quarter or trimester, to receive a cash deposit to celebrate their Great Grades.

Students will receive $1 for each grade they receive of an 85% or higher, up to $5 per quarter/ trimester.

Beginning with the 2015-2016 school year, we will start accepting the first trimester progress reports for students that attend schools with trimesters. This will give students attending schools with trimesters the opportunity to earn up $5 four times a year rather than three times a year. We will only be accepting progress reports from the 1st trimester. We will not accept progress reports from the 2nd or 3rd trimester or from students that attend schools with a quarterly marking period.

DFCU knows the importance of a solid education, and we are happy to support students who work as hard as they play.

Report cards may be hand delivered to your local branch, or mailed to 342 Tom Miller Road, Plattsburgh, NY 12901, Attn: Marketing Dept.

Please note that report cards must be received, prior to the release of the next quarter or trimester report cards, to be rewarded. What this means is that once we begin processing 2nd quarter report cards, we will no longer be able to accept 1st quarter report cards, and so on, throughout the year. Students will have until August 31st to turn in 4th quarter/3rd trimester grades.

If you are unable to make it to one of our four branches before the next report cards are released, please take advantage of our mailing option.
