How the Program Works
Westerra Credit Union will donate to your school sport/activity based upon the number of students, parents, family and friends who open specific accounts as a result of the fundraising email your sport/activity sends them. Your sport/activity receives $52.80 for each student who opens a savings account. Plus, you can get $52.80 for each additional account you open - and the school activity/program gets $52.80 for each account, too!

Frequently Asked Questions

We will personalize an email for the sport/activity. Click here to view a sample e-mail.
We then provide the email to the person who coordinates fundraising for that sport/activity.
They then simply forward it to their email list of parents.
The sport/activity will receive $52.80 for each student who opens a savings account – and for students or parents using the other services as described in the email.
Westerra will issue a check to the sport/activity at the time frame they designate. Having an account at the credit union for the sport/activity is not required.
How $52.80 Donations are Paid – After they meet the qualifying requirements (make debit card purchases totaling more than $52.80 or make Visa credit card transactions totaling $500), they need to call the credit union at 303-321-4209 to let us know they have completed that activity, and that they want to receive their $52.80 bonus and initiate the credit union’s $52.80 donation to the team/activity. For student savings accounts, no additional action is needed. When the student opens their account and mentions the team/activity, the $52.80 bonus will automatically be recorded in the system for payment to the team/activity.
To Open Accounts – Parents, students, friends and family can stop by any Westerra branch, conveniently located throughout the Denver metro area. Parent/guardian must accompany child or teen (0-17 years) with valid identification to open their accounts.
