The Millionaire's Club is a complete financial skills program designed for delivery in a club-like setting at high schools, colleges, and other community organizations. It is the most advanced, yet achievable financial education program available.
The Millionaire's Club was developed by professionals from non-profit banking, education, and financial literacy disciplines. The focus is on delivering a meaningful learning experience to Club members that will provide lifelong personal finance skills so participants avoid financial missteps, and prosper in our ever-challenging financial world.
Local Credit Union Leagues, Associations, and Foundations often provide support and help to organize new Clubs.
Materials and supplies are provided at no charge to Millionaire's Clubs.
Clubs are seeded through seed grants provided by the sponsoring credit union or other interested party and that investment may be shared by the local credit union league or credit union foundation. Seed funding ranging from $150 to $500 per year is awarded for the Club's first three years. Funding varies depending on the Club's needs, participation and fees associated with the Stock Market Game™, and start-up costs for the Club's annual entrepreneurial project.
By their fourth year, the annual entrepreneurial project should be generating funds to sustain the Club, while instilling business planning and implementation skills for Club members.
Typical Club size varies from 15 to 100+ members.
The Millionaire's Club curriculum is divided into easy-to-deliver sections that allow materials to be offered in their entirety or in sections.
Clubs generally meet every week or every other week, either in class, after school, or during school day open sessions. When offered by a school, the Club curriculum can easily be delivered between November and April, the typical "Club season."
Club members enjoy engaging competitions like the Stock Market Game™, The Personal Finance Challenge™, and the National Economics Challenge™.
The Club is run by faculty members at the school or a representative of the organization hosting the Club. The Club's credit union sponsors help by providing guest speakers, assisting in the entrepreneurial project, or helping with field trips and ancillary resources (like refreshments, Club apparel, etc.!)
Materials provided to the Club Advisor and Members are pulled from the best sources available. When coupled with the Club's encompassing curriculum, student leadership format, national competitions, and entrepreneurial activities, the Club delivers on its promise to build tomorrow's millionaires today through thoughtful preparation and engagement.
Club members have earned local and national recognition for their acquired personal finance skills.
