Boost Your 2022 Impact with Help from MCUF
The Michigan Credit Union Foundation (MCUF) has exciting plans to boost the credit union difference in Michigan in 2022. MCUF initiatives help credit unions both individually and collectively and include community enrichment, financial education and credit union leadership development initiatives.
Individually, credit unions can apply for MCUF grants or participate in MCUF programs and initiatives. MCUF Community Enrichment Grants are available to help credit unions increase their impact with initiatives aimed at improving the financial health of families, businesses and communities.
In 2022, MCUF will continue to fund the popular Enhanced Financial Counseling Certification Training. which has helped nearly 800 Michigan credit union professionals gain expertise to guide members and community residents towards financial health. MCUF will also focus on inspiring future credit union leadership and employee impact by brining “Exploring Why” credit union difference training to Michigan and supporting young professional development.
Collectively, all Michigan credit unions benefit from the increased community reach and awareness that comes from statewide financial education initiatives sponsored by Michigan Credit Unions with funding from MCUF. These programs include the $mart Money Kids Read program in public libraries reaching 8,000 families across the state.
New for 2022, MCUF will sponsor the $martpath Middle School financial education program, which can be used both by all Michigan schools and by credit unions.
MCUF is funded entirely by cooperative donations from credit unions and the credit union system. All credit unions are encouraged to engage with the foundation; both as donors, and as participants in MCUF impact activities. A request for a MCUF annual donation is included on the MCUL affiliation dues invoice with a suggested donation amount based on your credit union asset size. Please know that of course, donations in any amount are helpful and show your support for the great work the foundation is doing. If you missed adding your donation in with your affiliation invoice, you are welcome and encouraged to make your donation separately directly to MCUF.
