Hands-On Financial Literacy Program Now More Affordable for NJ CUs to Bring to Schools Free of Charge

HIGHTSTOWN, N.J. – The NJ CU Foundation Board gathered recently for a quarterly meeting and to discuss the Reality Fair program. With new materials available for students, the Board established a new, lower cost per student ($12, down from $18) that goes into effect as of August 2017.

The Board will also continue to consider grants for 50% of the cost of a Fair up to $2,500, with the limit of two grant requests per credit union per school year.

An updated grant application is available here.
