NCUF raises nearly $1M in supporter campaign
MADISON, Wis. (1/25/13)--The National Credit Union Foundation has raised nearly $1 million from credit union organizations as part of its annual Supporters' Program. The program raises funds for NCUF's programs and grants while providing benefits such as heightened visibility for donors, said NCUF.

Currently, there are a total of 26 credit unions and credit union organizations that support the program, NCUF indicated.

"NCUF Supporters help provide critical support for our programs to help make financial freedom achievable through credit unions," said Bucky Sebastian, NCUF executive director. "It's also a great way for organizations to demonstrate their commitment to the credit union movement and our philosophy of 'People Helping People.'"

The deadline to become a Foundation Supporter is Feb. 1. Supporters will be recognized at NCUF's  2013 dinner presenting the Herb Wegner Memorial Awards on Feb. 25. The dinner is in conjunction with the Credit Union National Association Governmental Affairs Conference, Feb. 24-28 in Washington, D.C. A private reception will be held for NCUF supporters.

The program allows the foundation to provide assistance to credit unions and credit union members through REAL Solutions, Credit Union Development Education training, grants, Biz Kid$ and disaster relief fundraising. Additional ways to support NCUF include investing in the Community Investment Fund or by making a donation, said NCUF.
