STAR Credit Union

STAR Credit Union is the first youth-chartered credit union in the world! Any Club member can join for as little as a quarter. STAR Credit Union was created in 2005 (Happy 10th birthday!) with the mission to instill financial literacy and responsibility in our members by providing access to financial services and the opportunity to participate in the development and operation of the credit union. Members learn the importance of savings, earn great incentives and participate in programs that teach everything from budgeting to investing to entrepreneurship.

STAR Credit Union, like all credit unions, is a not-for-profit financial institution which is a member-owned cooperative.  One way we serve our members is to offer a savings account with a high interest rate; this helps teach members the concept of compounding interest and helps them build wealth more quickly.

Summit Credit Union offers the Summit Faust College Scholarship to STAR Credit Union members. STAR Credit Union would like to thank its founder and dedicated supporter, Summit Credit Union, for their commitment to youth financial education.  To find out more about this financial institution, visit their website at:

STAR would also like to thank the Boys & Girls Club of Dane County.  They have been nothing but supportive of the program and without them STAR would not have found such a wonderful home at the club.
