CommonWealth One launched a new microsite, “In The Know” at http://www.COFCUknows.com, for its members in high school and college, specifically for those members at the James Madison University. In The Know is an online financial resource that focuses on member education and offers CommonWealth One members the resources, knowledge and tools needed for their financial success. CommonWealth One partnered with brass Media, Inc to provide this website for free.
Members can explore topics including careers, college, credit, debt, home life, investing, savings and more. They can also watch videos and view the digital edition of the brass Media student magazine. Each month, select members receive an email newsletter which updates them on the latest news from the "In the Know" website.
CommonWealth One Federal Credit Union places critical importance on financial education and helping their members achieve their lifetime financial goals. “We are providing our members with a valuable education service by offering the new microsite for free. We hold true to our commitment of “people helping people” and this website does just that. It educates our members by being their virtual financial advisor and life coach,” said Ashley Baldeon, CommonWealth One Marketing Manager.
