More than 850 Kansas youth saved more than $93,380 during April's Youth Savings Challenge. Kansas credit unions reported 86 new accounts were open. Nationally, nearly 95,000 youth collectively deposited $20.5 million into their accounts. The number of new accounts opened was 8,844.
Thank you to the seven Kansas credit unions who reported their results:
Crossroads Credit Union
River Cities Community Credit Union
Sunflower UP Federal Credit Union
McPherson Co-op Credit Union
United Northwest Federal Credit Union
Kansas Blue Cross Blue Shield Credit Union
Kansas State University Federal Credit Union
Credit unions could choose a week- or month-long campaign to encourage youth to save their money.
