Student Credit Union + BJM Fundraiser

March 1 - 31

Alternatives Student Credit Union provides hands-on learning to develop familiarity with saving and spending for kids in elementary school.

Ty Allan Jackson, author of Danny Dollar Millionaire Extraordinaire: The Lemonade Escapade, is visiting BJM April 15. Together, Alternatives and BJM are connecting literacy with financial education—a perfect match.

You can donate by cash, check, or money transfer in the lobby or online at: http://bit.ly/2lvyiuF
Your donation helps ensure every student:
  • can participate in their school’s Student Credit Union Branch
  • receives their very own copy of Danny Dollar
  • has Danny Dollar Book Kits for classroom learning
  • can access Ty Allen Jackson’s other titles at the BJM library
“You can’t be a leader in life, unless you’re a reader in life.”
—Danny Dollar
