Thanks to you.

Not for credit, not for charity, but for service.

What a year! I am incredibly grateful to have spent another year working alongside professionals who live out the Credit Union philosophy every day. The Foundation is important to our Movement because it promotes Credit Union leadership, education, social responsibility, and initiatives that support the long-term success in our Credit Union community.

But, more than that – it’s a living, breathing example that we are better together. We’ve accomplished more this year to secure the future of our Movement than ever before – all of which would have been impossible without your help.

We are beginning 2018 with over 250 new leaders, thanks to you.

Our future is in the hands of our future leaders. We need passionate leaders who understand and are committed to the Credit Union Movement. Leaders who are well equipped with the skills, experience, and support network required to lead with power. Thanks to The Center for Credit Union Leadership, our Movement has over 250 new Credit Union Leaders to fill the gap and drive Credit Unions forward in the years to come.

But, really – those new leaders are thanks to you.

Because, there are many management and leadership programs out there. But, until YOU made a commitment to support the foundation, a merit-based curriculum of leadership development, driven by academic research, specifically tailored to the Credit Union Movement didn’t exist.

Together, we saw a gap, and filled it. We are the Credit Union Movement. It’s what we do.

By contributing just 7 cents per member, the Credit Unions in our Association ensure the continuation of programs that support affordable financial services, Credit Union development, financial education, leadership development, and education. In other words, it’s one more way we are working together to support programs that benefit us all.

This year, become a Foundation Leader with your Fair Share Donation

With every leader who make the decision to increase the power of their Credit Union’s contribution by contributing just 3¢ more per member we can expand the Foundation’s impact even further.

Every year, the Foundation is able to do even more to support the future of Credit Union leadership. The benefits of these programs are far reaching, impacting donors and recipients alike. And, it’s only possible through the generous support of Credit Unions like yours.

Thank you.
