Biz Kid$ is the Emmy Award-winning and credit union-funded public television series that teaches kids about money management and entrepreneurship.
Earlier this year, NCUF made available the first four seasons of Biz Kid$ as DVD box sets. Each Biz Kid$ box set includes DVDs for each episode and a compact disk containing PDFs of the corresponding curriculum for each episode. NCUF also released Biz Kid$ starter kits to supporters late last year, which contains core DVDs and materials to teach Biz Kid$.
Each box set or starter kit is available for a donation of $60 to the NCUF. Credit unions, leagues and foundations can use the box sets or starter kits to teach Biz Kid$ in their communities and to:
- Donate to teachers/libraries/resource centers in each school of the districts in which they serve;
- Give to after-school programs, summer camps, Boys & Girls Clubs, children's hospitals, daycare facilities, and similar organizations; and
- Use to show Biz Kid$ in credit union branch lobbies.
NCUF oversees fundraising, outreach and administrative responsibilities of Biz Kid$.
During the past six years, more than 290 credit unions and affiliated organizations raised roughly $13.2 million to support the show's production, website and curriculum. Every Biz Kid$ episode begins and ends with a narrator reminding viewers that: "Production funding for Biz Kid$ is provided by America's Credit Unions, where people are worth more than money."
