Take Flight – Child Savings

Learning how to manage money at an early age is an important life lesson that can put children on the path to a healthy financial future. Research shows that children who have even a modest savings account can increase the likelihood of reaching financial security and improve the potential for achieving high school graduation. Children in HOPE’s Take Flight Savings Program will not only have an opportunity to open a savings account at Hope Credit Union, but they will also receive financial education that is fun and family-friendly. The financial education curriculum includes lessons about money management, financial goal setting, and how to save. Once a Take Flight account holder reaches age 18, he or she may withdraw the funds, or funds can be withdrawn for hardship purposes with HOPE’s approval. Parents can make deposits into the accounts; however, parents will not have ownership of the accounts. This exciting program aims to improve the financial habits and health of the entire family. Get ready for takeoff!

Above the Clouds: Savings to Help People Soar!

Together we can provide children and families with the tools they need to build wealth, save for college, establish healthy financial habits, and improve their overall financial outlook. Research shows that children with even a small college savings fund are nearly twice as likely to attend college.
