The Center for Financial Empowerment, the nonprofit organization founded by SCE Credit Union, empowers high school youth and young adults by teaching real-life financial lessons through activities and classroom workshops. One of the most basic workshop topics is about making choices with money.
Making healthy financial choices involves understanding the difference between needs and wants, as well as the concept of opportunity costs. While it may be important foundational knowledge for teens, everyone can benefit from a reminder of the basics from time to time.

Save the date! Giving Tuesday, November 27th, is a global day of giving. It comes soon after Thanksgiving, the day many of us celebrate the things we’re thankful for. Is there a better way to show your appreciation than by giving back during this charitable season?
We’re tremendously excited to share with you that the Center for Financial Empowerment (the CFE), which SCE FCU founded in 2005, was named a Nonprofit of the Year at the annual Nonprofits Day luncheon in Sacramento on June 6th.
Financial literacy isn’t trendy and doesn’t necessarily pull at your heart strings like many other social issues do. However, the impact is enormous. When we fail to teach financial literacy the result is often poverty. When we do impart this kind of knowledge the result is often success.
The new school year brings new opportunities for the non-profit founded by the Credit Union to reach more students with money smart financial skills. At the end of August, that nonprofit – the Center for Financial Empowerment (CFE) – hosted Mad City Money RECHARGED, a live demonstration and networking event for educators in Southern California.
