Visions FCU Receives Financial Education Award
Lake George, NY – During the New York Credit Union Association’s (NYCUA) Annual Meeting & Convention, Visions Federal Credit Union was recognized with the Desjardins Adult Financial Education Award.
The Desjardins Adult Financial Education Award recognizes credit unions that demonstrate a significant commitment to adult financial education. In 2021, Visions expanded education initiatives through their Wallet Wellness program, which includes self-guided lessons, one-on-one financial counseling, curated presentations, and community outreach in collaboration with local schools and businesses.
Virtual and in-person participation in these educational programs increased by nearly 300% that year due to improved marketing, additional fieldwork, and the expansion of financial literacy resources available for the Spanish-speaking community. In a recent press release, NYCUA stated, “As the Wallet Wellness initiative continues to expand, year-over-year growth of individuals impacted is a testament to Visions’ hard work and commitment to community.”
