MADISON, Wis. (4/7/14)--The Credit Union National Association announced for every print and online CUNA course purchased by credit unions this month, it will donate $1 to the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) to support its financial education efforts.
"We're making the most of Financial Literacy Month this April by letting our training give back," said Marlo Foltz, CUNA assistant vice president of blended learning. "We invite credit unions to join us in furthering our guiding purpose of 'People helping people' by taking part in the education opportunities available."
CUNA has pledged to donate up to $5,000 via course purchases in the month of April. More than 600 courses are available in print or online formats.
"We work to help credit unions make a tangible difference in people's lives, and contributions like these make our work possible," said NCUF Executive Director Gigi Hyland.
