DURHAM, NC (June 2, 2021) — Zogo Finance (“Zogo”), the financial technology company committed to empowering the next generation of financial decision makers, today announced it has entered into an agreement with Illinois-based Rockford Bell Credit Union (“Rockford Bell”), marking the firm’s 100th such partnership. In addition to credit unions, Zogo’s financial institution partners include banks at the national, community and regional levels.
This partnership with Zogo builds on Rockford Bell’s existing financial literacy initiatives, as part of which it has already established a student-run credit union branch, complemented by financial education classes, within a local high school. Rockford Bell’s president and CEO, John Hansen, remarked: “This partnership with Zogo reflects our longstanding commitment to offering forward-looking solutions that meet our members’ financial needs. We’re excited to introduce a unique twist to financial literacy education that rewards members for learning and helps them to make savvy, informed decisions about their money.”
Barb Lowman, president of CUNA Strategic Services, added: “Zogo offers innovative technology and easy-to-understand content, created by young adults for young adults, that can boost financial institutions’ ability to forge stronger relationships with prospective and existing members. We are thrilled to be working hand-in-hand with Zogo to deliver on the promise of financial well-being for all. It’s also fantastic to see another credit union double down on its commitment to prioritizing the member experience and driving positive change in their community.”
