Books Make Cent$-Financial Literacy for the Kids of the Southeast

Thank you for visiting the Southeastern Credit Union Foundation store promoting Financial Health in our elementary schools throughout the Southeast. Relationships built early are more likely to last and to foster members with bright financial futures.

Through the Books Make Cent$ program, we pair money-related books with  suggested activities for optimal student engagement, credit union awareness and of course, lots of fun!  We have even created a suggested lesson plan for each book to help you get started! (feel free to adapt the lesson plans to suit your needs)

This program is available year-round for anytime you’d like to share financial knowledge with your youngest credit union members so come back often! Order a set of one title at a time or order multiple titles, it’s up to you.

Here are some great ways to use the books to connect with kids (both virtually and in person):

  • Keep a supply in your branches and give one as a special gift for new kid accounts, for birthdays or as a reward for good grades!
  • Schedule a special “story time” online for families where you read the book and have discussions and then mail a book, along with the lesson plan to each parent that attends!
  • Schedule an online workshop with a homeschool group and send each participant a book for attending!
  • Hold a special family workshop in your branch or in a local youth agency…libraries love to schedule the workshops too and the book is a great gift for the kids to take home!
  • Order a supply for a classroom in the schools that you work with. What a great gift for each child to be able to take one home and share with their families!
  • Order a supply for a Title 1 school in your area. You can impact the children with the greatest need and the least ability to have that need met!

Each book contains a special bound page, right behind the front cover, explaining the credit union difference, the importance of having a savings account and a link to find their local credit union! 

  • The books will be shipped to you so that you can make the presentation of the books to the school. Or you can elect to have the books shipped directly to the school during the checkout portion of the process.
  • 50 books is our minimum per order. You will invoiced so there's time to claim your tax exempt status with our supplier.
  • One more option for your Credit Union.  The books come with the logo of the Foundation on the front. Or you can have your Credit Union's logo on the front for just the set-up fee of $50.00.
  • All orders will ship using Geiger's UPS discount with Carbon Offsets purchased for each shipment.
  • Please join us in giving the gift of Financial Health to kids! Place your order and check back regularly for new books!
  • Geiger and the Swag Krewe are proud to announce that a portion of every sale will be donated back to the Southeastern Credit Union Foundation to support the Credit Union mission of financial education. Books really do make CENT$!
