The Filene Research Institute is looking for credit unions willing to make The Leap.
That's the name of an interactive, Web-based program that credit unions can offer their members to show them ways to save some cash and the earth at the same time.
The Leap was created by volunteers from America First CU, Teacher's CU, Heritage CU and Call FCU who also are members of the i3 rising leadership group at Filene. With an eye toward Earth Day, the program provides members with step-by-step recommendations and the savings they can realize.
Credit unions willing to test The Leap are being sought. Participation is free and includes a marketing kit and Web tools that can be customized for a nominal fee.
