It has come to our attention that people have received text messages originating from a 608 area code stating that their Blackhawk Community Credit Union debit and credit cards have been deactivated. The messages request that members text or call back to reactivate their cards. Members are then prompted to enter their card number in an automated system. Please remember that Blackhawk will never ask you for this kind of information via text, over the phone or online. If you received this text and entered your card information, please contact us immediately at 608.755.6065 and we will stop your card and order you a new one. If you received the text and did not share any information, your card is safe.

Blackhawk Community Credit Union was recently awarded a grant from the Wisconsin Credit Union Foundation to help offer web-based personal finance lessons to students in grades K-12 in the Janesville School District. To help accomplish this goal, we purchased 10 iPads that serve as portable teaching devices. Each iPad includes 20 applications that we researched and selected to meet the needs of various grade levels on key financial topics and to appeal to student interests. This summer we have been designing lessons for students to use with the iPads to engage in financial learning and decision-making. Lessons will cover such areas as saving and wealth building, improving creditworthiness and budgeting. We are also training six of our student tellers to be Financial Literacy Student Ambassadors. They will serve as role models and leaders in their schools providing peer-to-peer financial education. With the partnership we established with the Janesville Schools, the District is now
