Credit Unions: How to Get Started

Your National Credit Union Foundation is focused on improving the financial health of credit union members. The Foundation conducted a year-long grant funding effort to conduct consumer financial health check-ups with the Center for Financial Services Innovation. This work, generously funded and supported by CUNA Mutual Group, included financial health check-ups for six credit unions.

The Foundation will be continuing this type of work do more research and identify specific products that credit unions should consider to improve members’ financial health in the areas of saving, spending, borrowing and planning.
Foundation Executive Director, Gigi Hyland, has also worked to examine the links between financial health and physical wellness. Her findings provide building blocks for credit unions to begin work in their communities to improve the overall financial wellness of their members. 

Coming in 2019, the Foundation along with the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues, and BALANCE will host the fourth-annual CUFinHealth symposium in Las Vegas, NV. We recommend that credit unions who are serious about centering their member's financial health choose to attend this valuable two-day event.
