2018 is off to a magnificent start for the Carolinas Credit Union Foundation. Not only does 2018 mark our 25th year of service but it also represents the strongest year of engagement from credit unions in the Carolinas. During the recent League dues process, credit unions stepped up in a big way to show their support.
The Carolinas Credit Union Foundation was one of the first foundations in the country to encourage credit unions to support its state foundation via the League dues process. The support in the Carolinas has grown each year and this year, more than $117,000 was raised! THANK YOU!
These funds go directly to support the daily operations of the Foundation, our scholarship program for credit union members in need of financial assistance for higher education, and our small credit union professional development grants. The Foundation's Disaster Relief Fund and the Victory Junction Reach Fund are separate fundraising initiatives with 100% of those donations going to support each fund’s individual purpose.
Thank you for your continued engagement and support. The Foundation has a few exciting things on tap for the coming months and I hope you will consider becoming more involved in our efforts to enrich the lives of children in the Carolinas!
