Since our inception in 1965, Educators have been an important piece in DFCU's Journey. Fast forward to present day, we're thrilled to be able to offer an array of resources for our Educators and School Faculty community.
Annually in December, we award grants ranging from $250 to $1,000 to deserving educators within our membership field, which can be utilized for enriching student experiences through equipment, field trips, or specialized programs.
Bite of Reality is a money management app simulation for 9th to 12th-grade students, where they create monthly budgets by navigating real-world profiles and visiting stations to experience financial decision-making, including interactions with salespeople and expenses, offering a hands-on glimpse into personal finance.
Money Smart Jr. is a financial education game for 3rd to 5th graders, challenging them to make wise spending decisions as they navigate through six stations, managing income and expenses while learning essential money skills.
