CUAD's Social Good Site Marks 1,500 Stories Posted
BISMARCK, N.D. (10/29/13)--CU Social Good, a website launched in January by the Credit Union Association of the Dakotas to share good things credit unions do for people and communities, has posted more than 1,500 individual stories about credit unions' outreach into their communities since it launched.
 
That is 500 more than the site had in mid-July. Then, most of the stories involved charitable work and community service projects and financial literacy projects (News Now July 23).
 
"At CU Social Good, you will find these 'good news' stories of credit unions and credit union people being involved in their communities--helping charities, promoting financial literacy, providing scholarships, volunteering their time, and supporting people and planet over profit," said CUAD' in a press release.
 
CUAD encouraged credit unions from throughout the nation to contribute stories that can be used for lobbying, awareness campaigns and community relations.
 
Credit unions can also post their good news stories on the Credit Union National Association's Unite for Good website or on the aSmarterChoice website. Some leagues, such as the Minnesota Credit Union Network, are collecting stories in their states and reporting them to media contacts to raise awareness about the value of credit unions to their members and community.
 
CUNA's and the leagues' Unite for Good campaign aims to raise awareness, remove barriers, and foster service excellence in a campaign toward a united strategic vision for the movement, where Americans choose credit unions as their best financial partner.  Use the links for more information.
