DoPack

Our club for Dupaco members age 12 and under is called DoPack—a made-up word that means you'll DO things in our Positive Action Club for Kids. You'll have fun, become a good saver and a good citizen in the DoPack!

To join DoPack, you'll need your very own savings account at the credit union, then you're automatically a club member! Your account can be opened with as little as $25—your parents or grandparents can help open the account for you.

Your new savings account is a safe place to put your hard-earned allowance, birthday money, lemonade-stand money... whatever money! The more money you keep in your account the better, because you can earn dividends—what Dupaco pays you for keeping your money at the credit union!

DoPack members also receive special newsletters, discounts on fun activities, and invitations to DoPack member events. Plus, with the all-new DoPack Saver's Club, you'll have the chance to earn cool prizes as you save and make deposits to your account!

It's difficult to impress children with the importance of saving when they are rewarded with a 0.1% return. Seeing 2 cents of dividend on a statement is disheartening. It would be nice if Dupaco would offer a higher rate on kids accounts, at least for the first couple hundred deposited. Another way to foster future members would be to offer CDs to minors with a reduced minimum investment (perhaps $200 to open instead of $1000 to open).

Hi Lucas, we agree and thank you for sharing your thoughts. The low rates on our DoPack accounts alone are not a compelling reason to save. While compounding interest is important, we also believe that educating children about the importance of saving, and getting them into that habit is equally significant. In the near future, Dupaco plans to enhance the DoPack kids' club in both aspects.
