CUNA Mutual Contributes $135K To NCUF
WASHINGTON (2/27/13)--CUNA Mutual Group Monday presented a $135,000 check to the National Credit Union Foundation to support the organization's general fund and for Credit Union Development Education.

The check was presented prior to NCUF's 2013 Herb Wegner Memorial Awards Dinner Monday night at the Credit Union National Association's Governmental Affairs Conference in Washington, D.C.

"The NCUF's renewed focus on consumer financial education, training of Credit Union Development Educators and its outreach to the young and elderly to help prepare them for their future or retirement aligns closely with CUNA Mutual Group's mission," said Jeff Post, CUNA Mutual president/CEO. "We are pleased to support an organization that devotes so much energy to develop and strengthen the credit union movement."

As the movement's charitable arm, NCUF funds projects that support industrywide development initiatives--including financial education to consumers of all ages, disaster assistance, greater access to affordable financial services--and empower more consumers to save, build assets and own homes.

"CUNA Mutual Group has been constant in its support of NCUF over the years," said Wendell "Bucky" Sebastian, NCUF executive director. "Our work to help improve consumer financial independence would not be possible without the continuing support of organizations like CUNA Mutual Group."
