The Future is Yours:

Picture it!   Save for it!   Share it!

To make dreams come true, it helps to have clear goals and to save some money to make them happen. Inspire your child to save their money by opening an account for them at BKCU so they can enjoy the future they have been picturing! In recognition of National Credit Union Youth Month, BKCU is offering a number of ways in which you can promote saving with your youth:

  • 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 a $25 deposit into their BKCU share account. Two winners will be drawn. Also, BKCU will deposit the first $5 into all new accounts.
  • In addition, any youth under 18 may enter a drawing to win a cash Grand Prize sponsored by the Credit Union National Association (CUNA).
  • BKCU youth members are encouraged to enter “The Future is Yours” coloring contest. One winner in each age category, ages 0-3 years, ages 4-6 years, and ages 7-9 years, will receive a $15 deposit into their BKCU share account. Entry forms are available in the office and are due back by May 10th.  Winners will be announced on May 15th.



Blaw Knox Credit Union offers two scholarship opportunities to its members. The 20th Annual Nancy Landon Scholarship and the R. W. Boyle Chapter of Credit Unions Scholarship application forms are now available in the office. Deadlines are April 12th for the R. W. Boyle Scholarship and May 10th for the Nancy Landon Scholarship. To be eligible to apply, one must have been a BKCU member for six months and for one year, respectively.



Whether it be a memorable family vacation, a landscaping project or any other special summer plans, let BKCU be of help to you! The Summer Skip-A-Payment program is once again being offered. For a fee of $25, members in good standing who meet the qualifications may opt to skip their July loan payment. An application must be processed. Call or stop by the office for all the details.
