This dearth of accessible, engaging financial education has left the majority of millennials and Gen Z financially illiterate.
Credit unions have the unique opportunity to invest in digital financial education, thus supporting the financial literacy of future generations through innovative education, while still strengthening their own businesses.

Interested in learning more about how your credit union can engage the next generation of members through digital financial education?

During our one-hour webinar: Zogo – on a mission to promote financial well-being for all, we will show you how the app works and why it is becoming such a popular educational tool.
AND – don’t forget the Dakota Credit Union Foundation is awarding five $1,000 grants to support financial wellness and education! These grants can be used for one of two options: the Zogo financial education app; or the CUNA Financial Counseling Certification Program (FiCEP).
