At Wright-Patt Credit Union (WPCU), we are here to help you save better, spend and manage your money wisely, borrow smarter and plan for your future! These four principals are the foundation to achieving your financial flexibility and freedom success. One of the ways we help, our members, just like you, and our partner-employees on their own personal financial journey, is through the various financial education and classes we offer. Our staple program, Finances in Focus, is a 5-week series and we recently held our last session of 2021.
We took our participants through the four pillars of Financial Flexibility and Freedom: Save, Spend, Borrow and Plan no matter where they were at on their personal financial journey. Class participants who are just starting out to those who have been financially savvy for years took away nuggets of information to help them succeed. Budgeting tips, savings opportunities and more were highlighted in each class. “One of my favorite things we discuss in session one is our money habits. We do an exercise that is eye-opening to so many participants! The activity provides awareness into why you may be spending money the way you do. Understanding your money habits is half the battle when it comes to sticking to a budget and planning for the future." says Devon Stinson, Finances and Focus host and WPCU's Member Engagement Specialist.
This last series, we were able to help over 140 attendees and are looking to help even more members, partner-employees and community members in the future! This 5-part series is open to members and non-members alike. We'll be offering even more Finances in Focus 5-week series in 2022, to reserve your seat, visit the education events calendar and be on the lookout for additional class offerings coming to you in 2022!
