The Club - Membership is FREE with Gerber FCU!
Teaching your child how to earn, save, spend, manage and invest money is vital to their future financial success. Gerber Federal Credit Union is proud to serve as a partner in your child’s financial education by offering The Coindexter Club. This award-winning program is designed for children 12 and under.
The primary feature of the Coindexter Club is Coindexter.com, a virtual-world game site that immerses children in real-life learning situations in a fun and safe environment. In the virtual city of Econopolis, children assume responsibility for chores and jobs, run their own company, and manage their virtual earnings. They can even invest in the local economy by visiting the Econopolis Stock Exchange. There, they can experience buying and selling shares of companies operating in Econopolis.
The Coindexter Club is designed to contribute to your child’s understanding of the responsibility and knowledge required to manage money effectively, spend wisely, and save aggressively. In addition to emphasizing money management, the Coindexter Club also focuses on helping your child be a contributing member of your household by encouraging responsible behavior, accountability and dependability.
The activities in the Gerber FCU Coindexter Club are structured to challenge children at different ages and levels of development. Children will find some activities easy while others may prove harder. Your child will get more out of his/her membership if you participate by checking for understanding of the terms and concepts offered on the site and in print.
Benefits for your child
Upon becoming a member, your child will have access to the Gerber FCU Coindexter.com website and may also qualify for special incentives and prizes. Plus, your child will automatically begin receiving The Econopolis Observer, the official quarterly newspaper of the city of Econopolis. The newspaper is personalized specifically to your child and provides updates on events in Econopolis as well as valuable tips on navigating the virtual world website.
