Education First Credit Union received funding assistance through a grant from the Ohio Credit Union Foundation. The foundation believes in empowering people to improve their financial well-being, based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality and equity. For many years the Ohio Credit Union Foundation has endorsed educational and outreach initiatives that promote financial independence through credit unions.
