CUAnswers Awards Innovator Grants
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (2/14/13)--CU*Answers, a Grand Rapids, Mich.-based credit union service organization, awarded grant funds for the second round of its Innovator Investment and Grant Program to three credit unions.

Funds were award to:

  • Jenny Bickel, Frankenmuth (Mich.) CU,  Frankenmuth, Mich., $5,000 for "Field of Dreams";
  • Renee Maeder, Best Advantage CU in Brillion, Wis., $5,500 for "Flix in the Sticks"; and
  • Annie Lepper, Superior Choice CU in Superior, Wis., $5,000 for its "Great Debt Pay Down."
For the 2012 program, the company received 10 entries, which were narrowed to four finalists. Each finalist gave a presentation at CU Answers' CEO Roundtable in November.

At its January meeting, the CU*Answers Board reviewed ballots submitted by audience members, and after deliberation voted to award the grant monies.

The four credit unions who presented at this year's event will receive a new Microsoft Surface tablet for participating. CU*Answers will announce the 2013 Innovator Investment & Grant Program in the next few months.
