About Us

The Iowa Credit Union Foundation (ICUF) was founded in 1995.

‚ÄčIn 2017, ICUF went through strategic planning and created a new mission and vision to better represent their strategic directives. Check out this video to learn more.

Mission. We empower people and communities to achieve financial well-being by championing the credit union philosophy of "people helping people."

Vision. To be the leader in facilitating collaborative initiatives and the hub for credit union philanthropy.

Strategic Directives. ICUF focuses on three strategic directives to help credit union members and Iowans improve their financial well-being. The directives include:
  • Be the champions of financial literacy
  • Provide tools for sustainable small businesses
  • Give all Iowans access to financial services

Thanks to financial support from credit unions and individuals, ICUF provides a variety of grants, scholarships and programs. Our flagship program, the Individual Development Account Program, is key to move Iowans out of poverty.

All money raised by ICUF directly supports ICUF’s work across the state.
