MY Credit Union Community Foundation
As of September 2021, MY CREDIT UNION is excited to announce the launch of the MY CREDIT UNION COMMUNITY FOUNDATION! What does that mean for MY CREDIT UNION members and the communities we serve? It will mean greater opportunities for MY CREDIT UNION to impact lives. As mentioned in the President’s Message our new mission is to Educate, Empower and Engage our members and the communities we serve. The Foundation is another vehicle to make that happen!
The primary focus and work of the MY CREDIT UNION COMMUNITY FOUNDATION will be to honor veterans (such as ongoing sponsorships of Flags for Fort Snelling and the Hendrickson Foundation) and support local high school activity programs. We would love to reduce or eliminate the financial barriers kids, parents and organizations face in the current pay to play/participate environment. We believe working together MY CREDIT UNION and its members can “Pay it Forward” for generations to come!
How can you help?
- On Going and End of Year Financial Support – members can now make tax-deductible donations directly to the MY CREDIT UNION COMMUNITY FOUNDATION (especially via our NETGIVER fee free app).
- Planned Giving – if you are a member that likes the vision of the new Foundation and wants to leave a legacy gift to support programs of your old Alma Mater, please reach out and we would love to talk to you. Hopefully members would feel their legacy gifts are safe with MY CREDIT UNION and its new Foundation.
- Volunteering – the power of MY CREDIT UNION and its members has been on full display since 2018 as we have worked together to help raise over $400,000 for Flags for Fort Snelling and just as important contribute hundreds of hours as volunteers to place, remove and store the 200,000 flags which honor veterans each Memorial Day. MY CREDIT UNION COMMUNITY FOUNDATION will be conducting its own fundraising events, with the goal of immediately dispersing 100% of the net proceeds back into the community.
