April is Youth Month!

Saving your money isn’t always easy, especially when you don’t have a lot to spare. It helps to start with small goals. For instance, commit to putting a certain amount, say $10, into a savings account every week. If you have direct deposit, consider setting up an automatic transfer of $10 into your savings account every time your paycheck is deposited. Gradually increase the amount of your deposits by a few dollars at a time.

To help your children get into the savings habit, start by having them cut out pictures of something they’d like to have someday and post the images where they’ll see them often. Then help them open a savings account at Encentus FCU. You can open an account with as little as $6.00! Encourage your child to make small deposits each week. Tell them their money will earn interest while it’s in their account. If they keep the routine going, they’ll quickly see their savings grow.

This April, we’re celebrating Youth Month. We are encouraging all members, particularly our youngest, to write down their dreams, create vision boards, and encourage each other!


In honor of youth month, we are participating in several exciting promotions throughout the month of April*:

1. Open a NEW youth account and get a $5.00 Sonic Gift Card.

2. Free coin counting for all youth account holders.

3. Pick up a FREE EFCU piggy bank while supplies last for your child, and open them an account (if they don't have one already). Share a photo of yourself with your new piggy bank and tag us on Facebook and we will deposit $5.00 into your child's account.


*Deposit must be made into Youth account during April to be eligible for promotions
