Learn the Science of Saving During Youth Month!

Every child dreams about their future. Some of those dreams may require money to come true. How do you help  your children achieve their dreams?

One way is to help them learn how to save their money. In April, Dannemora Federal Credit Union is celebrating Youth Month, which is a program that helps teach and encourage kids to develop good financial habits.

The theme this year is “The Science of Saving,” showcasing fun, sci-fi-inspired characters. Science has proven that if you start with small goals, saving your money can become a regular habit. This year’s Youth Month inspires children to begin saving the money they earn so they can attain their dreams of a happy future.

To help get our young member started we will be running promotions and contests throughout the month including:

  • Each time our youth members 17 and under come in and make a deposit over $5 and they are entered to win a $50 Target Gift Card!
  • Open a new youth account in the month of April and our new member  will receive a limited Science of Saving Goodie Bag and a $10 deposit into their new account (after 60 days)!
  • Youth members can also enter our Science of Saving coloring contest. Three winners from different age groups will be selected to win $25! Coloring sheets are due Friday, April 27th. Please include youth’s name and account number on the back of their coloring sheet. The three ages groups are: 3-6, 7-11, 12-17. There will be one winner/age group.

On the last Friday of the month we will have snacks and goodies. We will also be sponsoring an event at MLPBS during April - stay tuned for details!
