“I want to personally thank Renee Sattiewhite for her support. AACUC has sponsored our summer interns for the past three years.


They also sent us several phenomenal financial education and nonprofit capacity building experts.

I also want to thank TruStage for connecting us with AACUC. I hope this partnership will endure for many years to come."

CLIMB USA is a national nonprofit organization, based in Wisconcin, that is developing a community of youth and families that are all learning the economic way of thinking and living within a strategically organized ecosystem. The key elements of our economic empowerment framework include youth development, building wealth through investment clubs, entrepreneurial training, and thought leadership.

AACUC delivered several critical resources for the denovo charter application, including our business plan expert and our technology consultant.  Notably, it was also AACUC that re-opened the door for us at the Minnesota Credit Union Network, which re-connected us to Affinity Plus.


Now AACUC is bringing the same effort and professionalism to providing technical assistance for the ABEP Financial Empowerment Center. The reach and influence of AACUC is only matched by their dedication to community.


I just can’t say enough for their incredible efforts on behalf of the Association for Black Economic Power.

Junior Achievement Initiative

200 Students Experience Budgeting Simulation 

Elan partnered with African-American Credit Union Coalition to bring JA Finance Park to 200 middle school students in conjunction with national financial literacy month.

Elan and AACUC were joined by volunteers from AACUC Texas Regional Chapter member credit unions Resource One Credit Union, Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union, Neighborhood Credit Union, and Baylor Health Care System Credit Union to guide students through the budgeting model.

“Financial well-being is a core tenet of the credit union movement,” said Delana Huling, President/CEO of Baylor Health Care System Credit Union and AACUC Texas Regional Chapter President. “Historically, communities of color have had many reasons to mistrust financial institutions, so being able to empower our youth with financial education in an immersive experience like this can have lasting, positive financial outcomes while also making banking and financial services more inclusive for them.”
