How We Help

Strengthening Financial Well-being

Biz Kid$: Teaching Kid$ About Money

Fairs & Simulations: Behavior Change Catalyst

Improving People's Financial Health




Leveraging the Credit Union Difference

The Foundation helps credit union volunteers and professionals understand how to “keep purpose constant” in our movement through:

Credit Union Development Education (DE) Program

Uniting Resources to Help Credit Union People During Disaster

Through CUAid, the Foundation raises disaster relief donations to support credit union employees and volunteers who suffer unrecoverable losses.

CUAid: Disaster Relief
The National Credit Union Foundation is able to leverage funds from many credit unions to tackle issues and opportunities that are difficult for any single credit union to tackle. From financial literacy projects, grants, philosophy training, to the Biz Kid$ television show, the Foundation is often an incubator of ideas that are important to our social mission and is one of the credit union movement’s best examples of collaboration for the benefit of our members and communities.
