Education is a top priority for Scott Credit Union. We are sharing two free programs for students in Kindergarten-4th grade.
Originally created through a partnership with the Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois to help Daisy and Brownie troops earn badges, this workbook teaches students to identify coins and bills, distinguish between needs and wants, and determine ways to Save, Share, and Spend money they have earned.
Scott Credit Union has partnered with the St. Louis Cardinals to develop a financial literacy program that introduces students to the importance of making smart financial decisions. Normally shared with educators, the program is being opened up to allow parents to utilize the curriculum while students learn remotely.
We are a proud partner of Lindenwood University, McKendree University, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, and Southwestern Illinois College, as well as many area elementary, middle, and high schools.
In addition, we partner with the Southwestern Illinois College Foundation and Lewis & Clark Community College Foundation to offer a $1,000 scholarship to each college. Please visit their websites for more information.
