Wisconsin Credit Union Foundation, Inc. Grants and Scholarships Program

REAL Solutions® Initiatives
The Foundation will award grants to Wisconsin credit unions that have signed a letter of commitment to the REAL Solutions initiative.

Professional Development Scholarship
The Foundation supports the professional development and continued education of credit union staff and volunteers. Two scholarships will be awarded; one to CUNA Management School and the other for the National Credit Union Foundation’s Development Education Program. Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of need, the impact of the program on the credit union and the applicant’s involvement in and commitment to the credit union movement.
Grants will be considered from time to time for emergency relief to provide temporary support for credit unions that have experienced natural disasters. Grants are available at a time of need to assist credit unions, their members and communities following a catastrophic event.
