How You Can Help Join FC2S/Alliant Partnership

 

Donate Now to Join Foster Care to Success & be Eligible to Join Alliant Credit Union!

Alliant Credit Union, one of the largest and most respected credit unions in the country, recognized the need for improved financial literacy among aged-out foster youth and came to Foster Care to Success (FC2S) to form a partnership on their behalf.

Without a parent or guardian, foster youth often lack basic guidance surrounding day-to-day decision making. Upon entering adulthood, they frequently struggle with financial issues such as creating a workable budget, saving money, and the perils and pitfalls of credit cards.

With an initial donation to Alliant Credit Union OR a donation of  $10 or more to any Foster Care to Success (FC2S) program, you become a member of FC2S and eligible to join Alliant Credit Union. Alliant will match your donation up to $10, with the proceeds going to support students through our InternAmerica, Care Package and Red Scarf Emergency Fund programs.

Alliant boasts better than bank rates on savings and loans, 24/7 member services, and of course, an impressive record of community involvement.
