The foundation was created to improve the lives of consumers in the state of Texas through promoting financial wellness, providing access to financial education, and raising the overall level of financial literacy.  

"Neighborhood Credit Union is thrilled to be launching the Neighborhood Credit Union Foundation," said Neighborhood Credit Union Senior Vice President of Remote Services and Development, Carolyn Jordan.

About the Neighborhood Credit Union Foundation  

Neighborhood Credit Union Foundation’s mission is to help Texans make smart financial choices in money management and attain financial prosperity. The foundation's launch opens Neighborhood Credit Union's membership eligibility to the entire state of Texas and provides access to financial experts that help members with their everyday financial needs. 

Neighborhood Credit Union has always advocated for financial literacy in a variety of methods. The credit union provides ongoing free financial literacy classes throughout the year that cover topics from buying a car to saving for retirement. A free tool called Money Management is located in Online Banking and the MyNCU mobile app, where members can learn how to best manage budgets with easy-to-follow graphs, adult online financial education modules, and a suite of financial calculators to assist members in making sound financial decisions. The credit union also has an ongoing partnership with GreenPath, the national nonprofit whose focus is providing easy access to financial wellness for everyone.
