Parent University is a one-day back-to-school family event where parents choose academic and health-related classes based on their individual needs. The purpose is to provide support for parents to help their children. In lieu of a "degree", parents earn a backpack filled with school supplies and a voucher towards the purchase of school uniforms.
The ēCO Credit Union Foundation was excited to be invited to Parent University to teach the "Money Matters" course to the parents attending. We were so impressed with the program that we also gave a $750 grant to honor their efforts in spreading financial education throughout their community.
Thank you to everyone that participated in the ēCO Credit Union Foundation fundraiser at the end of May. The fundraiser was a huge success and we could not have done it without you!

A huge thank to all of our friends, family, and ēCO Credit Union members. Stay tuned to hear about how we are using these donations in the community!
ēCO Credit Union Foundation Scholarship
In Spring 2017, we awarded our first ever ēCO Credit Union Foundation Scholarship to a very deserving recipient, Jordan Rose. This is just a portion of what your donations are doing in our community.
Being awarded the ēCO Credit Union Foundation Scholarship will be an immediate, tangible benefit to my career. This award will lessen the amount of student debt that I will incur while paying for my college tuition as well as other miscellaneous expenses associated with this process.
The 2nd Annual eCO CU Foundation Charity Trail Run is a local initiative to help raise community awareness to encourage financial literacy. The run is designed to increase efforts toward sponsorships, classroom seminars and community engagement to teach sound financial principles.
We had a great time at the Trail Run in April 2017 and want to give a BIG thank you to our sponsors who made this fundraiser possible! And you can say thank you by supporting them.
Please follow us on Facebook or Instagram where we will continually keep you updated on all events going on within our community. You can also look at our past events to see how everyone was involved!
