National CU Foundation launches monthly giving option
MADISON, Wis. (11/10/10)--The National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) recently launched a monthly giving option for donors. The monthly gifts can be made from either a checking account or debit/credit card. “We wanted to make it as easy as possible for people to support our critical programs and grants,” said Bucky Sebastian, NCUF executive director. “Once they fill out a quick form, donors can continually help consumers reach financial freedom in a convenient way. It’s a low-maintenance way of giving with a high impact.” Ninety-five cents of every dollar raised goes to support the foundation’s strategic programs and grants, which help credit unions provide widespread financial education, create greater access to affordable financial services, and empower more consumers to save, build assets, and own homes. NCUF programs and grants include:
* REAL Solutions--helping credit unions offer services that have proven successful for people of modest means and “low wealth”; * Credit Union Development Education--preserving credit unions’ uniqueness through training in credit union philosophy and cooperative principles; * Financial Education--sponsoring Biz Kid$, the award-winning financial education series on PBS stations underwritten by America’s credit unions; * CUAid (www.cuaid.coop)--raising disaster relief funds for credit union employees, volunteers and members; and * Innovation Grants--encouraging credit union innovations through grant-making.
