Box sets of the first four seasons of Biz Kid$ are now available from the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF). Biz Kid$ is the Emmy Award winning and credit union funded public television series that teaches kids about money management and entrepreneurship.
Each Biz Kid$ box set includes DVDs for each episode and a CD containing PDFs of the corresponding curriculum for each episode. Late last year, NCUF also made available Biz Kid$ starter kits to supporters, which contains core DVDs and materials to teach Biz Kid$.
Each box set or starter kit is now available for a donation of $60 to the National Credit Union Foundation. Credit unions, leagues and foundations can purchase box sets or starter kits to:
• Donate to teachers/libraries/resource centers in each school of the districts in which they serve.
• Give to after-school programs, summer camps, Boys & Girls Clubs, children’s hospitals, daycare facilities, and similar organizations.
• Use to show Biz Kid$ in credit union branch lobbies.

The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) oversees fundraising, outreach and administrative responsibilities of Biz Kid$, which recently started its fifth season. Over the past six years, more than 290 credit unions and affiliated organizations have raised more than $13.2 million that has supported the show’s production, website and curriculum. In fact, every Biz Kid$ episode begins and ends with a narrator reminding viewers that: “Production funding for Biz Kid$ is provided by America’s Credit Unions, where people are worth more than money.”
Many credit unions leverage Biz Kid$ to teach financial education in schools in their community. In addition to NCUF’s box sets and starter kits, companion materials and other resources for teachers and parents are available at no cost on the Biz Kid$ website. The site also features clips from the series and invites kids to appear on the show.
