The Association of Black Economic Power held a townhall meeting last week to provide updates to the community on the new credit union and to announce the results of voting for the new name. The community voted for “Arise Community Credit Union” by a landslide. The new name will be used in place of Village Financial Credit Union going forward.
Also last week, CUInsight published an article by Nation Credit Union Foundation executive director Gigi Hyland and MN CU Foundation Executive Director Andrea Molnau on the importance of the creation of the credit union and its opportunity to truly impact Financial Well-being with cooperative values.
The Minnesota Credit Union Foundation is seeking both Capital Contributions, Individual Donations, and Pledges of Deposit to help support this effort. To learn more, visit mncun.org/villagefinancial or contact Minnesota Credit Union Foundation President Mark Cummins or Executive Director Andrea Molnau.
