Filene Research Institute raises funds for NCUF
WASHINGTON (7/19/10)--There is a way for credit unions to help their members, the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) and the Filene Research Institute all at the same time. During July, the Filene Research Institute will make a $200 donation to NCUF’s general fund for every purchase of Filene’s Debt in Focus program. The program is an online financial assessment tool that encourages people who are intimidated by traditional financial counseling programs to get the help they need. So far, through beta testing by 200 credit unions and the addition of 150 licenses sold in June, more than 250,000 consumers have used the program to understand what they need to do to control their debt. A one-year license for the Debt in Focus is $1,199, while Filene members pay only half that amount ($599). Filene will put the funds raised from sales toward future innovative work that will benefit credit unions. For NCUF to receive a $200 donation from Filene with the purchase of each Debt in Focus license in July, the orders must come from the resource link below.
