The League Site

For A Reason website and League video efforts


The "For A Reason" website highlights stories that illustrate how Wisconsin credit unions' REAL Solutions help members, communities and future generations. The content, which is organized by chapter, consists of video testimonials from CU staff, volunteers and members, as well as news stories and images detailing credit union outreach.

The site offers a way for credit unions to show how they're addressing many of the difficult issues facing members and our communities during these tough financial times - the risk of foreclosure, debt traps caused by payday loans, the unavailability of credit for small businesses and the lack of financial savvy that has imperiled so many families living paycheck to paycheck.

In order to continue building the site and showcasing stories, The League has a number of Flip camcorders available for credit unions to use. Contact Chad Helminak for availability and details. In addition, The League will continue to collect video by coordinating visits and setting up cameras at events. Credit unions are welcome to submit their own content to the site as well.

For more information on the types of video we're looking for and how we're collecting it, please see the following links:
