April 2021

Be a credit union saver and your savings will never go extinct!

Talk to your kids about money. Inspire your child to save money by opening an account for them at BKCU.  Celebrate National Credit Union Youth month during April and teach your children and teens the importance and value of saving.

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, will be entered into a drawing for $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.



Blaw Knox Credit Union Annual Business Meeting will be held on Tuesday April 20th 2021 at 10:00am. The location will be at the credit union office at 215 South 17th Street, Mattoon, IL 61938. Members who wish to attend must RSVP to the credit union office by April 16th.

Due to the amount of space the meeting will be open to members only. We are unable to have food or giveaways as years past. Social distancing will be enforced and masks are required.
