Thornapple Credit Union is committed to teaching financial literacy to as many people as possible. Financial literacy empowers people with the information they need by helping them to understand how to live on a budget and manage their finances.
Financial literacy’s importance to daily life cannot be stressed enough. If you understand how to balance your budget, set aside savings for the future, and develop a strong financial vocabulary, you will be a more successful consumer.
