GCS received an honorable mention for the Desjardins, Youth Financial Literacy, Award at the CUNA National Awards for the $250 million - $1 billion asset category.
The Desjardins Award recognizes credit unions for leadership within the credit union movement on behalf of financial literacy for all ages. GCS was recognized for their youth financial literacy efforts. GCS is bringing Banzai, a premium online financial literacy program, to educators and students in our local community for free. In 2021, GCS had a record-breaking year by teaching 9,000 students through their Banzai program. Over 100 teachers were able to use the platform in their classrooms. A local teacher said, “Teachers around the country are scrambling to meet state literacy requirements - with little to no financial help. GCS is helping fill that gap with cutting- edge software, interactive classroom materials, and professional presentations.”

If you are interested in partnering with GCS on financial literacy, please reach out to Lacy at lable@mygcscu.com.
The Dora Maxwell Award recognizes credit unions for its social responsibly projects within the community.
