Illinois League celebrates a 'banner year' with charitable contributions

January 27, 2022

The Illinois Credit Union League, Envisant, and its employees contributed more than $650,000 to charities and credit union organizations in 2021.  After a tremendous year that exceeded financial goals, the Illinois League and Envisant were able to share their success and multiply its benefits by supporting local and national charities and industry groups.

“Collaboration is essential in the credit union movement and is critical to what we do,” says Tom Kane, CEO of the Illinois Credit Union League and Envisant. “Our success is based on the success of our members and customers, so we are thrilled to share the proceeds of our exceptional year with deserving groups around the country and in our community.”

“Envisant is committed to helping credit unions grow,” says Libby Calderone, president of Envisant. “We did a rebrand in 2021 from LSC to Envisant, but our mission hasn’t changed to help credit unions of all sizes achieve their vision.  Our financial success gives us the opportunity to support the great work credit unions do in their communities and I thank our customers for their support of Envisant last year.”
