“Save Away for a Rainy Day”

 Because when kids learn about the importance of saving money for the future, they are laying the foundation for financial success!

During the month of April, each eligible youth under 18, who either opens a new share account with a deposit of $25 or deposits $25 in their existing share account in person, will be entered into a drawing for a $25 deposit into their BKCU share account. Four winners will be drawn. BKCU will deposit the first $5 into all new youth accounts. With each new account a BKCU piggy bank will also be given.

BKCU youth members are encouraged to enter “Save Away for a Rainy Day” coloring contest. One winner in each category, ages 0-3 years, ages 4-6 years and ages 7-9 years, will receive a $20.00 deposit into their BKCU share account. Entry forms are available in the office and are due back by May 14th.Winners will be announced May 15th.
