Thank You to the Michigan Credit Union Community
Our movement’s social mission is about being a positive force in our neighborhoods — finding areas, organizations and people that need help and providing that help. We all know how difficult the last few months have been, and I have been proud to see Michigan credit unions immediately identify those in need, and provide for them.
In late May, massive flooding impacted members in Midland. The Michigan Credit Union League (MCUL) and Michigan Credit Union Foundation (MCUF) donated $10,000 each in support of those impacted by the flood and reached out to the credit union community for additional support, and you responded.
To date, $147,495 has been donated for the Midland Flood Relief Funds. These will be used by the area credit unions to help hundreds of members with grants for flood repairs.
In April, the MCUF announced Community Crisis Support Grants aimed at supporting and amplifying credit union community outreach initiatives in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, the Foundation has given out a total of 28 grants totaling $101,707. All grants supplemented credit union investment, making the total impact more than $200,000.
These grants wouldn’t be possible without your generosity and support, so MCUL wanted to take a moment and thank all of the credit unions that have participated in either of these coordinated campaigns, as well as through their own individual outreach efforts.
MCUL also wants to give a special thank you to Alloya Corporate Federal Credit Union for their multiple generous donations during this time, as well as other sponsors, such as CU Solutions Group, Commercial Alliance, Holzman Law, Neighborhood Mortgage Solutions, Dolphin Debit Access, CUNA Mutual Group, Origence and many others, including the following:
Corporate Central Credit Union
CUNA Mutual Group
iZale Financial Group
