You care deeply about your community. You want them to have the tools they need to be financially educated and successful. But with so many channels vying for your audience’s time and attention, how do you become the source that they trust most?

Not only did Abound’s youth financial education programs help them open 769 new accounts for under-18 customers in 2020—their efforts also won them 2nd place for the 2021 CUNA Desjardins Youth Financial Education Award.
