Leavenworth, KS – As credit unions across the country celebrate National Credit Union Youth Week, Nerdwallet.com recognized Frontier Community Credit Union for a youth rewards program that lasts during the annual celebration and beyond.
One of only nine credit unions to earn recognition for youth programs on the independent financial comparison website, Frontier Community CU earned the Best Ongoing Bonus title for quarterly Kids’ Club drawings. When credit union members ages 12 and younger make at least a $5 deposit to their Frontier Kids’ Club account, they are automatically entered to win a $50 prize.
Frontier Kids’ Club accounts require a starting deposit of just $25, and give young members opportunities to learn valuable lessons about saving and spending.
"The best way to ensure your children will have a bright financial future is to teach them about money from an early age,” said Frontier Community CU President Bill Hauber. "Rewarding our Kids’ Club members for smart saving is just one of the ways we can do that, and we’re excited be a part of financial education in our community.”
Frontier Community Credit Union is a not-for-profit financial institution serving those who live or work in Leavenworth, Atchison, Jefferson, Douglas, Johnson and Wyandotte Counties, as well as active or retired military and Federal Civil Service personnel who reside within a 100-mile radius of Fort Leavenworth.
