Did you see the recent ALICE Report revealed that nearly 4 in 10 of households in our state have income which falls below what is needed to pay for basic necessities such as housing, food, child care, health care, technology, and transportation?
Here at the League's Foundation, we are working harder than ever to lift CT residents and communities while raising awareness to credit unions throughout the state.
One of the ways we are helping is through financial education, where we've served 34,000 high school students and another 400 students through our virtual financial reality fair program. We're providing financial education in areas of need, included our underrepresented and marginalized populations in our state's urban centers.
We are excited for what 2021 will bring. Next year, the foundation has an ambitious plan to make investments in you--our member credit unions--by offering FiCEP training--with an audacious goal of having one certified counselor in every credit union.
But we can't do all of this work without you.
Please consider a direct donation to the foundation as part of your year-end giving. Together, we can help all residents and communities in CT improve their financial health through credit unions.
Thank you for your support,
