Michigan State University Federal Credit Union has reached out to members and non-members through a financial education initiative designed to help community members reach goals.
The credit union offers seminars—which discuss topics like credit and budgeting—at its Farm Lane branch and headquarters. This year, the credit union has offered 49 seminars, which have attracted more than 600 people.
“In addition to MSUFCU’s popular seminar series, we have an Education Outreach Specialist that travels around the Greater Lansing and Auburn Hills areas to share financial information with residents and students,” Sarah Bohan, the vice president of corporate relations, said. “Our goal through this program is to ensure we provide individuals the right tools to help them reach their financial dreams.”
MSUFCU has partnered with Michigan State University, Oakland University, Boys and Girls Club of Lansing, local elementary schools, Capital Area Michigan Works and Demmar to offer financial education materials. Over 2,600 people have attended presentations by the institution’s education outreach specialist.
MSUFCU is the largest university-based credit union in the world, offering a wide range of financial services to MSU and Oakland faculty, staff and students, as well as alumni association members. Founded in 1937, the credit union has 13 branches, more than $2.5 billion in assets and over 180,000 members.
