In 2006, WEOKIE formed the WEOKIE Foundation. A 501(c)(3) public charity, The Foundation provides a formal avenue of charitable giving for WEOKIE Federal Credit Union and offers financial education and scholarship opportunities to Oklahoma City and the surrounding communities. The Foundation is governed by an appointed volunteer Board of Directors, which oversees The Foundation and its operations.
The WEOKIE Foundation has developed a no-cost Money Talks Financial Education program designed to teach youth how to manage money wisely. The financial literacy program focuses on classroom lessons, presentations and seminars in grades 2-12 to help students understand financial responsibilities and encourage them to make smart decisions as they become more financially accountable.
Contact our Education Department at email@example.com for more information or to schedule a classroom session.
