In The Classroom

Each Spring, we offer financial literacy presentations to Chester County Public School classrooms. The national philosophy of credit unions is "People Helping People". Keystone Federal Credit Union is committed to supporting this philosophy. We strive to support and to be involved in efforts to improve the quality of life in our community. By offering financial literacy, we are molding the youth of today to be better prepared to serve our community as adults in the future. Our free presentations are age appropriate for grades K-12 and cover a variety of topics. If you would like to schedule a free financial literacy visit for your classroom, please contact Keystone FCU at 484-356-0400.
