OMNI Community Credit Union awarded a “Give Back” grant to a local shelter organization, S.A.F.E Place, which helps thousands of domestic abuse victims and their children.
The $5,000 grant helps the shelter provide services to victims at no cost.
“S.A.F.E. Place is an organization that is invaluable,” says Ted Parsons, CEO of OMNI Community Credit Union, Battle Creek, Mich. “Helping domestic violence victims by giving them the peace of mind that they are safe and don’t have to worry about money at such a difficult time is vital. We are proud to be given the opportunity to help these families.”
CUNA compliance staff has received a number of questions in recent weeks regarding Internal Revenue Service W-9 forms and taxpayer identification numbers. A recent CompBlog entry lists some of those frequently asked questions, along with answers.
CUNA is concerned with a report on consumer testing used by the CFPB to analyze periodic statement forms for consumers in bankruptcy, but concurs with some of its findings. The bureau issued a report in February on its study.
