Supporting financial literacy and capability to achieve prosperity
Throughout the region, credit unions are helping their communities by providing financial education, innovative products and services that meet the evolving needs of rural members, guidance on saving for and affording higher education, and assistance when disaster strikes. GoWest Foundation is proud to partner with credit unions who provide these important programs and services. We convene local and regional stakeholders to promote efforts that help under-served and vulnerable communities work toward self-sufficiency and financial security.
Financial Reality Fairs
Credit unions partner with the Foundation to provide Financial Reality Fairs to high school students in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming with the skills they need to make smart budgeting and spending decisions in the future, setting them up for success.
Through this initiative, GoWest Foundation supports with credit unions in pursuing innovative ideas and projects that provide rural communities with access to the financial products and services they need to truly thrive.
