We all know how important a credit union's philanthropic efforts are within the communities it serves. But when it actually helps boosts an organization's advocacy efforts, it takes it to a whole new level.
To get the inside scoop on how this works, NetGiver's Miriam Ackerman and Minnesota Credit Union Network Director of Business Development Kris Jacobsen joined us on the show to share. NetGiver's mobile app allows credit union members to choose from their favorite local charities and give at their discretion fee-free. As a result, the message or advocacy spreads throughout the area, sharing the giving nature of credit unions -- therefore, shining a bright light on these financial institutions, which results in greater interest in membership.
Miriam and Kris explain it much, much better. So check it out and let us know your thoughts. And watch the puppy video below (or on YouTube) to gain a bit more insight on how it works.
