How it Works
CIF is an Easy Way to Make a Big Difference
The Community Investment Fund (CIF) option allows credit unions the ability to share a percentage of their investment's interest earned as a donation to CIF – a donation that helps both our
national and state foundations. By investing in CIF and sharing a slice of the pie, you help to expand the capacity of credit unions to serve members and communities, while earning a return for your credit union.
Credit unions investing in the CIF receive 50 percent of the dividend of their investment. The remaining 50 percent is distributed to the Foundation, half of which the Foundation returns, pro-rata, to the leagues or foundations of investment origin.
