iNerd Walleti spotlights seven CUs fin lit programs
MADISON, Wis. (7/3/12)--Seven credit unions were featured in a financial literacy blog post on Nerd Wallet, a personal Finance website committed to promoting financial literacy.

The blog, titled "Spotlight on Credit Unions" featured seven credit unions that provide resources for financial literacy on their websites.

"Your local credit union is an excellent resource for financial literacy materials," the article said. "That might sound surprising, but it actually makes a lot of sense. Here's why: credit unions are not-for-profit financial institutions. They offer all the same products and services as banks, but they're not owned by corporate shareholders. All credit union members are co-owners, so your local branch is eager to help you make smart financial decisions."

The Nerd Wallet blog also noted that credit unions make decisions in the best interests of their members.

The credit unions cited included:

  • Financial Center FCU, Indianapolis;
  • AmeriChoice FCU, Mechanicsburg, Pa.;
  • Metro CU, Boston;
  • UW CU, Madison, Wis.;
  • Kauai Community CU, Lihue, Hawaii;
  • BrightStar CU, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; and
  • DuTrac Community CU, Dubuque, Iowa;
