To support the organization’s general fund and its Credit Union Development Education program, CUNA Mutual Group has made a $140,000 donation to the National Credit Union Foundation.
CUNA Mutual President/CEO Bob Trunzo presented the check to the NCUF prior to the 2014 Herb Wegner Memorial Awards Dinner held Monday in conjunction with CUNA’s Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington.
Trunzo said CUNA Mutual has been a longtime supporter of the NCUF. A number of the company’s employees are also graduates of the NCUF’s CUDE program.
“(We) are honored to support an organization that embodies the spirit of credit unions through its efforts to strengthen and develop the U.S. credit union movement,” Trunzo said.
As the movement's charitable arm, the NCUF funds industry-wide development initiatives including financial education to consumers of all ages, disaster assistance, greater access to affordable financial services, and helping empower consumers to save, build assets, and own homes, according to CUNA Mutual.
“The continuing contributions of organizations like CUNA Mutual Group enable NCUF to support effective initiatives that improve people’s financial lives through credit unions,” said Gigi Hyland, NCUF executive director.
