EAST LANSING, Mich. — MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) hosted its annual Kids’ Day on August 4, 2018, welcoming nearly 900 community members. This event featured inflatables, a magician, balloon animals, face painting, food, and fun for children and their families.


“We were excited to host this event once again and offer a day of fun for families in our community,” said Deidre Davis, MSUFCU’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Kids’ Day has traditionally been an opportunity for families to spend time together playing games, stopping by the photo booth, having balloon animals made, and enjoying lunch and other treats. This annual event also gives MSUFCU employees opportunities to build stronger relationships with our current and future members — especially our youth members — by interacting with them in a casual and relaxed atmosphere.”


As part of Kids’ Day, games focusing on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects were available for children to play as well as information about youth accounts and financial education. WKAR also provided information about its PBS children’s shows which encourage early learning. Through this annual event, MSUFCU promotes responsible money management for children and their families.


MSUFCU has a national reputation for excellence and has received several top industry and workplace awards. For the sixth year in a row, MSUFCU was named as a Top Workplace in the large employer category by the Detroit Free Press. Last year, it was also recognized as one of CU Journal’s Best Credit Unions to Work For, a Best Workplace for Women by Fortune Magazine, an Outstanding Credit Union of the Year by the Michigan Credit Union League, a Michigan Best and Brightest in Wellness award winner, and is certified as a Great Place to Work®. MSUFCU has also been nationally recognized for its financial education initiatives, ranking first in Michigan and second in the nation for the 2017 Alphonse Desjardins Adult Financial Education award by the Credit Union National Association. Founded in 1937, MSUFCU has 18 branches, over 260,000 members, more than $4.1 billion in assets, and nearly 900 employees.
