Thank You for Supporting Benefit Night!

Thank you for supporting the 2018 Iowa Credit Union Foundation (ICUF) Benefit Night Fundraiser during the annual Iowa Credit Union Convention. Every dollar raised from ticket purchases, silent auction bids and Friend of the Foundation donations enables ICUF to impact more lives throughout the state of Iowa. 

Thanks to your generosity, Benefit Night raised $71,000! The night truly showcased the "people helping people" philosophy of the credit union movement. Nearly 300 individuals gathered to celebrate and honor the philanthropic impact of Iowa credit union leaders and raise funds for the needed programs, grants and services provided by ICUF.

The 2018 ALICE Report is Now Available
The Iowa Credit Union Foundation has teamed up with the United Ways of Iowa and Alliant Energy to fund the 2018 ALICE Report. This report is a valuable tool gaining perspective on the growing financial struggles of Iowa's families. ALICE is an acronym that stands for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed. These are working families that have income above the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), but cannot make ends meet each month.

We invite you to visit our webpage to learn more about this special report and download it for review. If you find the report of interest, you may request an in-person presentation of the data from ICUF as well.
