Thrive Credit Union

Thrive Kids

Ages 0-12

We provide parents and kids with the resources they need to establish healthy financial habits when they’re young. A Thrive Kids’ savings account gives kids the opportunity to build a positive relationship with the credit union and become comfortable depositing and withdrawing cash. Thrive Kids receive gifts, can enter quarterly contests, win prizes and gain access to member only events.

Quarterly Contest:

Print out or pick up a coloring sheet of a Thrive pumpkin and create your pumpkin with your own fun style! When you’re done, put your name and account number on the back. Bring the colored page to one of our offices. We’ll put it up for everyone to see. We’ll vote on our favorite coloring page and the winner will receive a $25 gift card to Toys Forever Model & Hobbies.
