Cut Out House And Childrens Hands With Smiley Faces On Them

Financial Education is Key to Living Successfully!

Learning to be financially literate is often left to a series of trial and error lessons as we journey through life. In some instances, making ill-informed decisions can cost thousands of dollars not to mention years of stress and uncertainty.

At New Dimensions FCU, it is our goal to increase our communities’ financial knowledge so that people are equipped with the tools needed to make sound financial decisions throughout their lifetime. Whether it’s drafting a monthly budget, reviewing a credit report and discussing ways to improve a score, buying a vehicle, or understanding the mortgage process, our staff is committed to teaching best practices and being a long-term education resource to our members and the communities we serve.

Over the past year, our staff has educated members in various financial classes and seminars; as well as at Financial Fitness Fairs held at local high schools in Augusta, Waterville, Winslow, and Oakland. Similarly, NDFCU has visited local businesses such as Mid-Maine Regional Adult Community Education, Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter, and other organizations to educate their employees with relevant topics from our new “Eat, Learn & Prosper” Series. Additionally, we have added free evening seminars offered at our Waterville branch where both members and non-members can receive education on important topics such as Identity Theft Protection and Understanding and Improving Your Credit Score. Our 2018 educational seminars will focus on creating effective household budgets, understanding credit and avoiding pitfalls, car buying, home buying and more. All seminars will be announced through our newsletter, social media, and other marketing efforts.
