Invest in the Community Investment Fund (CIF)


The Community Investment Fund (CIF) is a vehicle that allows 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.
