Financial Education
 

NEW Financial Education CDs 

ICUF, in partnership with its financial education consultant, Adam Carroll, launched a financial education program designed with your membership in mind. 
  • Four new audio programs are available with content targeted to your members and their children.
  • The product is a professionally-recorded, produced, packaged and shrink-wrapped audio CD housed in a DVD case.
  • Your credit union's name will be prominently displayed on the front with a "compliments of..." printed directly on the case.
  • Inside the DVD case, a letter from your credit union's CEO describing your credit union's commitment to bettering the lives of your members will be professionally printed and inserted in the product.

Grants and Scholarships
 

Financial Education Grant

The ICUF Financial Education Grant was created to help credit unions develop a financial education program or enhance an existing financial education program.

 

These grants should be seen as seed money, rather than the only funding source for a program. The credit union must be a member in good standing of the Iowa Credit Union League.

 

Download the application. All applications are due by August 31.

Small Grants Help Iowa Credit Unions with Tech Costs

A lobby coin-changing machine is too expensive for a small Iowa credit union to afford by itself, but small credit union grants from ICUF may be able to help pay for it.  

 

A $10,000 annual donation from Veridian Credit Union enables ICUF to make grants for technology and strategic planning to Iowa credit unions with assets under $25 million. Read more.
