Throughout the year we have a number of fundraising opportunities such as:

Amazon Smile

Buy a lot online? Visit amazon.smile.com and - just once - designate The Foundation as your charity of choice. Then bookmark the site and use it each time you shop so that The Foundation benefits - Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price for every eligible item you buy. It's the same Amazon you've always known with the same merchandise and prices, offering a convenient way to help others.

System/business partners can sponsor (see p. 12, 14) Foundation fundraisers to boost their impact, and you'll gain visibility on event materials, during events and as part of our communications. Or, just make a contribution and we'll add you to our prestigious Annual Donor Fund Society


What better way to connect the “People Helping People” philosophy to your colleagues and friends than through a gift to the charitable organization dedicated to helping Wisconsin credit unions help others. Use the Memorial/Tribute Donation Form to give a gift today!

Community Investment Fund (CIF)

The CIF is an investment vehicle allowing credit unions to support the National Credit Union Foundation and state foundations, including ours in Wisconsin. The CIF provides almost two-thirds of the funding for key programs benefiting credit unions, their members, and the communities they serve.  Credit unions investing in the CIF receive 50 percent of the dividend of their investment. The remaining 50 percent is shared equally between the state and national credit union foundations. Contact Mary Bliss for more information.

Dues Invoice

Included on your annual dues invoice is the opportunity to make a donation to The Foundation. Just mark down your donation amount and include a check to The Foundation with your dues payment. Invoices mail the first week in December.

Giving Tuesday

Remember the Wisconsin Credit Union Foundation the Tuesday after Cyber Monday - a way of giving thanks and sharing your bounty with others. Giving Tuesday is a global event that can do good across Wisconsin with your help!

Founder's Circle

The Founder's Circle was introduced as a way to raise money to begin The Foundation and help it achieve its mission. Individuals, credit unions and credit union partners were invited to join the Founder's Circle by making contributions based on specific donor levels.
