Community outreach, fin. lit. get $88K in Cornerstone grants
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (3/10/14)--The Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation has awarded 41 grants totaling more than $88,000 to support credit unions and credit union chapters in their community outreach and financial literacy efforts and the professional development of staff and volunteers.
 
Staci Zale, foundation associate director and grants manager, thanked credit unions for their support of the foundation. "By awarding these grants, we are simply paying it forward," she said.
 
Twenty-one of the grants awarded were for professional development. Sixteen were community outreach grants to support activities such as Junior Achievement and Financial Fitness of Greater Austin and Financial Fitness of Greater Dallas, the Cornerstone Credit Union League reported ( Leaguer March 7).
 
Four credit union chapters also received grants. The grants helped the chapters host reality fairs and bring speakers to their chapter meetings.
 
The foundation is once again collaborating with the Consumer Credit Counseling Services of Greater Dallas to host 100 financial education webinars in April for National Financial Literacy Month.
