Help the Foundation continue its outreach!

 

The Wisconsin Credit Union Foundation is helping credit unions continue serving members and Wisconsin communities. Your donations have done tremendous good in 2013, and as part of the Foundation’s fall donor drive you and your credit union can be recognized for your support in continuing this valuable outreach.

In 2013, the Wisconsin Credit Union Foundation:

 

  • Provided financial education tools to 382 teachers at 309 Wisconsin schools. The brass|STUDENT PROGRAM teaches teens at public high schools personal finance basics. A lifestyle money magazine – paired with online resources for teachers and students – support state teaching standards. The effort has been honored with the state’s top financial literacy award.

 

Please help continue this success!


Ensure that opportunities like this continue by:

  • Purchasing a Ca$h Calendar, a holiday raffle offering $2,500 in cash prizes during December.

 

 

  • Making a gift as part of your credit union’s League & CUNA dues payment.  Invoices will arrive in December.

 

  • Using the Community Investment Fund to earn income year-round for your credit union while supporting community development programs at the state and national levels.

 

All 2013 donors will be recognized as part of The Foundation’s Annual Donor Fund Society. Thank you for using the Foundation to improve the quality of life in Wisconsin!

  • Awarded REAL Solutions Initiative® Grants to enhance member service delivery. One of those grants is helping the youth-run STAR CU serve its young savers with a new laptop and an improved website. The other is helping Park City CU in Merrill teach small businesses who cannot access affordably priced loans or services about the self-help they can access through credit unions.

 

 

  • Provided emergency relief. $1,000 went to help credit unions affected by this year’s flooding in Colorado.

 

This year, the Foundation also introduced a new Credit Union Development Grant to help defray the technology or operational costs that have inhibited them from serving members. This funding is open to all credit unions with a preference to credit unions below $50 million in assets. The recipient(s) of the first-ever Development Grant will be selected in November.
