  • Tongass Federal Credit Union School Savings Program

    Tongass Federal Credit Union and the Ketchikan School District are working together on a program to teach children about the importance of saving. Parents sign a permission form and their children can then make weekly deposits into a savings account in their name. The account will earn 5% APY! Print out the attached document today & send it into school! Our wonderful TFCU Representatives will meet all children who wish to participate every Wednesday in front of the Houghtaling Office! Periodically TFCU will send out statements so together you & your child can watch their account grow! An awesome fact - last year over 60 students together saved $5002.00! Houghtaling Dolphins & TFCU are AMAZING!
