TruNorth Announces Partnership with Greenlight Debit Cards for Kids

TruNorth Federal Credit Union has announced its partnership with Greenlight Financial Technology, INC to provide its members free* access to the award winning “debit card and money app for kids”. This collaboration is part of TruNorth’s commitment to Financial Literacy Month and follows the credit union’s vision – to be our members’ financial institution of choice for life by providing innovative services, benefits, and personalized financial guidance.

“We are very excited to partner with Greenlight to provide a hands-on tool that empowers parents to develop good money management practices with their children at a young age for spending, saving, and charitable giving” said Lindsey Butorac, TruNorth’s Vice President for Finance, Operations & Human Resources, who also holds the title of “mom” to two of TruNorth’s Compass Club members who are very excited to receive their new Greenlight debit cards. “TruNorth prides itself on being our community’s financial compass and we are very excited to offer this partnership to our next generation of TruNorth members to establish good financial habits that will last a lifetime.”

The robust Greenlight app offers many features that allow parents flexible controls to set up chores, automate an allowance, assist kids in budgeting their money, and achieving a savings goal. Kids and teens get hands-on money management experience and also have access to Greenlight Level Up, an in-app financial literacy game.

TruNorth members will receive a free* Greenlight subscription when they register online here and add their TruNorth Federal Credit Union account as a funding source. Parents may add up to five kids, each with their own debit card.
