CASE CU Leverages MCUF Grant to Enhance Responsible Rides Program
Michigan credit unions are involved in inspiring community reinvestment activities with help from Michigan Credit Union Foundation (MCUF) grants. An MCUF grant helped CASE Credit Union enhance their Responsible Rides auto lending program, which provides a better choice for credit-challenged consumers.
This year, MCUF is again making funds available to help credit unions build stronger communities by addressing community problems, creating sustainable solutions and helping to increase community reinvestment, financial education initiatives, partnerships and more.
Applying for and utilizing an MCUF grant is easy, contact MCUF Executive Director Beth Troost. Grants are available in amounts ranging from $100 to $20,000 and can be used to implement unique credit union initiatives or partnerships, or to replicate or expand on existing saving, lending and educational programs to help community members. Examples and suggestions for community reinvestment projects are listed on the MCUF website. Requests for funding to assist individuals and communities in low-income, underserved and urban areas are especially encouraged by MCUF.
Funded by donations from credit unions, chapters and businesses, MCUF works cooperatively to help credit unions thrive and serve Michigan communities through financial education, community reinvestment and professional development support. Current MCUF grant cycle inquiries are due June 30. For more information or to get started, contact Troost at (800) 262-6285, ext. 453.Go to main navigation
