The facts are troubling: Americans are demonstrating relatively low levels of financial literacy and have difficulty applying financial decision-making skills to real life situations. According to two recent financial capability and literacy studies, 40% of adults gave themselves a grade of C, D, or F on their knowledge of personal finance while a staggering 60% say they don't have a budget or keep close track of their spending.
We have more work to do as these are your members, friends, and possibly even your family. Credit unions were started to serve the unserved and underserved. It's the National Credit Union Foundation's purpose to ensure those values and principles are uplifted and help credit union members achieve financial freedom.
With your support, the Foundation can expand our mission-critical credit union programs such as REAL Solutions™, Credit Union Development Education (DE) training, Grants, Biz Kid$ and disaster relief fundraising. You can be a part of helping us make an even bigger impact and make financial freedom a reality for members across the credit union movement.
Therefore, as you consider your sponsorships and philanthropic gifts for the next year, we hope you will consider a contribution to the National Credit Union Foundation through our supporters program. It's a great way to advance the financial well-being of your members, show your commitment to the credit union movement and its principles, and receive special recognition and visibility. Also, new for 2014 is recognition of your support in trade publications and quarterly communications from NCUF on your contribution’s impact.
Supporters will also be recognized at a special, private NCUF reception at the next CUNA GAC. To ensure you are properly recognized at this premier event, please fill out your supporter designation form. Questions? Contact Tom Candell at either (800) 356-9655, Ext. 4398 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have served as a Supporter in the past, we welcome your ongoing support and encourage you to increase your support level. If you are planning to become a first-time NCUF Supporter, we promise you a fulfilling and rewarding experience.
On behalf of the Foundation and the millions of people we serve, we want to thank you in advance for your support.
