Financial Education

The Foundation's flagship financial literacy program is the Financial Counseling Certification Program (FiCEP). This training program allows credit union staff to become Certified Certified Union Financial Counselors (CCUFC) and further their financial literacy efforts among their members.

The Foundation promotes responsible personal financial management to young adults. Many teachers also look to credit unions for support in operating youth-run branches, savings programs, etc.

Scholarships & Grants 

The Foundation provides funding through scholarships and grants that support Wisconsin credit unions’ REAL Solutions® initiative, as well as the professional development and continued education of credit union staff and volunteers. The Foundation's Professional Development Scholarship offers opportunities for both Young Professionals and additional applicants, regardless of their age.

Disaster Relief Assistance

The Foundation supports disaster relief assistance, such as through CUAid, and for credit union employees and members affected by a natural disaster. Your help is urgently needed following Tropical Storm Harvey!
