Philanthropy and credit unions go hand in hand like jeans and T-shirts, strawberries and whipped cream, Edison and a Tesla, and even the Captain and Tennille. Ok, the last one's a stretch, but you get the gist.
It's for this reason, and a myriad of others, that the Foundation launched its new Credit Union Philanthropy & Foundation Toolkit_ for CUs looking jumpstart or enhance their charity endeavors. These endeavors will initially accomplish two things: deepen member relationships and expose the credit union's altruistic difference to consumers who may be looking for a change.
To get more details on this launch, we invited the Foundation's Executive Director Gigi Hyland on the show. Gigi shared why her organization created and launched the Toolkit, how it can help credit unions get moving in this area, credit union examples of successful philanthropic efforts, goals for the Toolkit, and where credit unions can get the Toolkit and get started.
