In a new press release issued today, KAPFCU is making a difference in the “Lives of Children and Youth Credit Union Membership Ages 18 to 24″:

Kappa Alpha Psi Federal Credit Union (KAPFCU), the country’s first “virtual credit union”, was recently awarded a $500 Making a Difference grant from the Texas Credit Union Foundation (TCUF) to provide financial literacy and credit counseling to youth in Plano, Texas.

Movement in the credit union is stagnating with its aging members; according to recent NCUA statistics the average age of credit union members is currently 55+.

KAPFCU contrasts sharply to this with the age of its membership between 18 to 24.
