Biz Kid$ has been named the beneficiary of the 2017 San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl. The Emmy award-winning comprehensive financial literacy program teaches kids how to use credit wisely and educates them on the importance of saving, budgeting, investing and giving back to their communities. $1 from each ticket sold to this year’s game will be donated to help provide financial education programs to local students.
Biz Kid$ is a national program that includes a public television series that promotes financial education for elementary through high school students and was created by the same team that produced Bill Nye the Science Guy. The money generated as a result of tickets sold for the 2017 San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl will go towards providing additional sets of the complete SDCCU Biz Kid$ Program to teachers to ensure that our local students graduate high school with the critical financial skills needed for a successful future.
“SDCCU is proud that Biz Kid$ will serve as the beneficiary of the 2017 San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl. Each ticket sold for this year’s game has the potential to benefit thousands of students in our community for years into the future,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck. “As San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, and a Live Well San Diego partner, we are committed to encouraging and maintaining good financial health among individuals in our communities, which is essential to fostering a healthy and thriving economy.”
