Lexington, KY - The University of Kentucky Federal Credit Union (UKFCU) has partnered with Zogo, the gamified financial literacy app, since 2020 to provide engaging, accessible financial education resources within their community. UKFCU membership is not required to use Zogo, and the Zogo app is free to download with no in-app purchases.
Developed by students and scientists at Duke University, the Zogo app offers more than 350 action-based modules in personal finance topics, from opening a bank account to protecting your investments. All modules meet national standards for financial literacy curriculum, and are short enough to be completed on-the-go and fit into virtually any schedule.
UKFCU’s partnership with Zogo allows users to redeem “paw points” earned within the app for rewards including gift cards for popular retailers as well as access to the all-new UKFCU Esports Lounge located at the University of Kentucky. The partnership embodies UKFCU’s commitment to cultivating new technologies and leading their community with innovative resources promoting financial wellness, and users can expect updated content and new features in the latter half of 2021.
“Without financial literacy, it is nearly impossible to achieve true financial freedom, and educating our community in a convenient and secure way is a core value of our credit union,” said David Kennedy, President/CEO. “These are goals that UKFCU, Zogo, members, and students are now coming together and working toward. We are excited to see the next generation becoming more interested in financial literacy, and Zogo has removed any barriers for them to start learning right away at their own pace.”
