Changing People's Lives Through Credit Unions

Our Vision
The National Credit Union Foundation’s vision is making financial freedom achievable through credit unions. As the charitable arm of the U.S. credit union movement, the National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation) works to ignite understanding and focus on member financial health, inspire and create opportunities for credit unions to leverage their cooperative values and respond quickly when disaster strikes. Through cooperative support and action, the Foundation helps people achieve financial freedom.

Our Mission

The National Credit Union Foundation is a catalyst to improve people’s financial lives through credit unions.

We are a Catalyst
Whether it’s collaborating on projects, convening resources, igniting passion, honoring leaders, or making financial education meaningful, the Foundation represents credit unions at the national level, kick starting their efforts to strengthen the financial well-being of everyone in their community.

Additionally, the Foundation actively participates and presents at several national financial literacy conferences to represent the good work credit unions already do in providing financial education to members and communities. To help people achieve financial freedom, we work with credit unions, state trade associations and foundations, government agencies, and other partners.

We are indeed a catalyst – a change agent, aggregator, connector, spark, leader – working to improve people’s financial lives through credit unions.
