Filene Announces Seven CUs Hit Silver Benefactor Level
MADISON, Wis. (12/11/13)--Seven credit unions increased their financial support of Filene Research Institute to achieve silver benefactor status as part of the Filene's Go Silver! membership program.
 
"These organizations share our vision of a thriving and dynamic future for credit unions dependent on active participation," said Mark Meyer, Filene Research president/CEO. "Their support of Filene enables us to drive change for the cooperative system as a whole."
 
The seven credit unions, which were previously bronze-level members, include:
  • A+ FCU, Austin, Texas.
  • American Airlines CU, Fort Worth, Texas;
  • Coastal FCU, Raleigh, N.C.;
  • Digital FCU, Marlborough, Mass.;
  • Redwood CU, Santa Rosa, Calif.;
  • SchoolsFirst FCU, Santa Ana, Calif.; and
  • State Department FCU, Alexandria, Va.
In recognition of its 25th anniversary in 2014, Filene invited its bronze benefactors to upgrade to silver in a special, limited-time membership program. Credit unions participating earn a credit toward an appreciation program, ranging from impact solutions and technology strategic planning to community engagement and extra membership support.
 
Filene's silver benefactors contribute $24,999 annually.
 
Go Silver! is limited to the first 25 member organizations that commit.
