At 1st United, we believe good financial habits start at a young age. A Credit Union savings account is a smart way to build a bright financial future. That’s why we’ve developed this unique fundraising opportunity. Here’s how it works:

Earn Money for Your School

  1. Students, families, teachers, faculty, or community members open a new, qualifying 1st United account using the school's promotion code
  2. We’ll donate $25 to the school
  3. Plus, we’ll deposit $25 into a savings account for the member, too

Qualifying Accounts Include:

Participating Schools
