Move Your Money moving to nonprofit org
MADISON, Wis. (4/23/10)--'Move Your Money' is now moving to become a nonprofit organization. The campaign urges consumers to deposit their money into credit unions and community banks instead of large banks. The 'Move Your Money' project has functioned on a volunteer basis. However, the project is now looking to hire a few full-time staffers and expand the project into a national campaign. 'Move' also partnered with Network for Good, a fundraising site, to generate money for the organization. Since its inception, the 'Move Your Money' website has received millions of hits, and mentioned on major news outlets. The campaign also has generated numerous fans on its Facebook page. 'Move' has consistently noted credit unions as good alternatives to big banks. The Huffington Post launched the campaign last December. It carried an article by Credit Union National Association (CUNA) President/CEO Dan Mica and a link to CUNA's credit union locator.
