  • Richmond Public Schools Saving Program

    We’re giving Richmond Public School students $20 to jumpstart their savings!

We want to help RPS students start their saving journey.

  • It’s never too early to start saving. That’s why Virginia Credit Union is partnering with RPS to bring financial literacy opportunities to the students of Richmond Public Schools. And through our program, RPS Saves, we’re encouraging students to save and setting them up for a bright financial future.

    Sign your RPS student up for a VACU savings account, and we’ll jumpstart their savings by covering the $5 membership and depositing $20 in their account!? Please note: Applications for minors age 13 or younger may only be completed and submitted by the intended custodian on the account.

    Get started

      When you reach the eligibility step in the application, select the first option that you live, work, worship, volunteer, or attend school within a qualifying community. Then select Richmond from the dropdown menu.
