Langley Federal Credit Union awards grants to schools
Langley Federal Credit Union awarded $10,000 in grants — forty grants of $250 each — to local schools. The recipients of the award were selected for outstanding programs designed to teach financial literacy in the classroom.
Schools will use the grant money for a multitude of projects all related to financial literacy education, such as:
- How to create a youth budget.
- A student-run, non-profit school-supply store.
- The creation of a Reality Fair where students pick a hypothetical occupation and manage all aspects of their finances.
Langley's longstanding philosophy is that financial education begins at a young age. LFCU has been dedicated to educating the community on financial matters for many years, and considers financial education a part of its mission.
