Texas foundation funds 100 webinars for Fin Lit Month
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (4/1/11)--The Texas Credit Union Foundation (TCUF) is providing grant dollars to the Consumer Counseling Service Center of Greater Dallas (CCCS) to help CCCS offer 100 free webinars through April in honor of National Financial Literacy Month. Consumers who attend at least three webinars will have a chance to win one of three $100 gift cards, TCUF said. The CCCS webinars will focus on personal finance topics including information for consumers on recession proofing their finances, surviving a financial crisis, credit scores, basic money management, budgeting and savings goals, foreclosure prevention, identity theft, couples and money, and financial planning for milestones such as getting married, buying a home or having a baby. “Collaborating with CCCS is a natural fit, as our organizations have a like-minded mission of empowering people to improve their financial well-being,” said Courtney Nickels, NCUF executive director. She noted the outreach initiatives “are aimed at lifting Texas families out of financial crisis and on the path toward financial freedom.” TCUF also is partnering with CCCS and The Texas Credit Union League to host “Your money, Your Matters,” a live, weekly blog talk-radio program that informs and educates the public on issues related to personal finance--such as asset building, retirement planning and investments. The program also addresses current issues--including the economy, financial marketplace and credit unions in general. Throughout April, the program’s discussion will focus on National Financial Literacy Month.
