PCUF Marks 17th Year With 500th Grant
HARRISBURG, Pa. (3/20/13)--The Pennsylvania Credit Union Foundation marked its 17th anniversary Tuesday by providing its 500th grant.

The grant was given to a staff member at City Co FCU in Pittsburgh to allow her to attend the Judge Bradley Leadership School (Life is a Highway March 19).

"What is remarkable is that today, the foundation continues its astounding success because of its consistency in a philosophy that all of its programs will result in continued, increased credit union membership, as well as a more financially savvy consumer," said Ray Brunner, PCUF chairman.

The first PCUF grant was awarded Dec. 27, 1996, to PHILCup, a nonprofit organization, to assist three low-income credit unions in Philadelphia.

The foundation since has raised more $3 million and awarded more than $2.2 million in grants.
