The Minnesota Credit Union Foundation is an organization dedicated to providing the resources for credit unions and communities to prosper and thrive.
Established in 1969, the Foundation has helped many credit unions with limited resources to grow and prosper and reach underserved communities. Some of the activities funded through the Foundation in the past include cooperative leadership training, education and development for credit union employees and volunteers, financial literacy programs, and charitable fundraising. The Foundation has also provided funds to aid in international credit union development and local, national and international disaster relief efforts.
Founded by the Minnesota Credit Union Network and governed by a seven-member board of directors from various Minnesota credit unions, the Foundation considers grant requests with an eye toward its goal of “empowering people to achieve.”
