Because financial education is a central part of who we are, Northwest Georgia Credit Union wants to help kids get a head start on the principles of financial responsibility. The purpose of the Acorn Club is to give kids the opportunity to save and manage money to gain an early understanding of financial responsibility.

Membership in the Acorn Club is free and only requires that your child is a member of NWGACU by opening their own account. Children under age 18 are required to have an adult over age 21 on the account; children do not have to be present for parents to open the account. Please bring your child's social security card when you come by.
All Acorn Club members receive a welcome kit that includes:
  • An Acorn Club t-shirt
  • A savings bank to help you and your child save along the way
  • A Savings Tree Tracker - each child will receive a savings passbook to help manage their account. For each deposit a child makes that is $5 or higher, he or she will receive a sticker on their tree and a surprise toy. After 10 deposits, your child will receive a $10 bonus deposit as a reward, along with a new Savings Tree Tracker.*
  • Getting started tips for parents on how to begin teaching your child about money

  • Annual Acorn Club Cutest Kid Photo contest with savings prizes
  • Quarterly events that include financial literacy and activities
