Civic Federal Credit Union Partners on Financial Literacy with Wake Forest Area Chamber Foundation


RALEIGH, N.C., Oct. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Civic Federal Credit Union, a digital-first and member-led financial services firm serving North Carolina's local government employees and their families today announced a financial literacy partnership with Wake Forest Area Chamber Foundation for the 'Reality of Money' program. 

The annual program gives middle and high school students interactive opportunities to make financial decisions based on assigned personas with specified career, income and budget information. Students are paired with professionals to learn the basics of money and to discover the impact of money decisions. More than 750 students are expected to participate in the 2021-2022 program.

Civic Federal Credit Union shares a commitment with the Foundation to improve financial literacy and wellness for North Carolinians. The Reality of Money event is scheduled for November 9 -10 at Wake Forest Middle School; March 30, 2022 at North Wake College and Career Academy; and April 27, 2022 at Wakefield High School.

As the exclusive financial partner, Civic Federal Credit Union will lead the pre-teaching portion of the event to give students a basic understanding of money fundamentals such as income, expenses, and debt.

“Understanding how money works empowers people and has a lifelong impact on North Carolinians,” said Lauren Panameno, Strategic Partnerships Manager at Civic Federal Credit Union. “As a credit union, our mission is to help improve lives,” continued Panameno. “Financial literacy is integral to creating strong communities, starting with students and continuing on throughout life – it's everyone, in whatever stage of life they are in.”
