CUNA Mutual Heritage Challenge nets funds for NCUF
WASHINGTON (2/26/10)--The hundreds of Governmental Affairs Conference attendees who participated in CUNA Mutual Group’s “Heritage Challenge” helped raise $2,500 for the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF).

The challenge, an interactive game, tested players’ knowledge of the long and often overlapping history shared by credit unions and CUNA Mutual. CUNA Mutual pledged a donation to NCUF for every point scored, and attendees responded by earning a $1,750 donation. CUNA Mutual added an additional $750 to bring the total donation to $2,500, which will be targeted to NCUF’s Development Education Program. The activity helped launch CUNA Mutual’s 75th anniversary celebration in 2010. “Our 75th anniversary is the perfect time to remind ourselves of the cooperative character that binds us,” said Christopher Roe, CUNA Mutual senior vice president of corporate-legislative affairs.” The funds and additional support provided by CUNA Mutual enable NCUF to sustain and grow its Development Education Program, said Tom Candell, NCUF interim executive director and managing administrative director. “More than 900 credit union professionals and volunteers have experienced developmental education training, which helps put into action the cooperative values and principles that make credit unions uniquely socially responsible,” Candell said. All who took the challenge were given a commemorative box containing a 1935 penny, symbolic of CUNA Mutual’s humble beginnings and its roots in the credit union movement, said the company.
