As your state trade association, the Minnesota Credit Union Network works proactively to create the environment for credit unions to grow market share and demonstrate the CU Difference. To help achieve this goal, MnCUN has stablished restricted funds to strengthen our advocacy efforts on behalf of Minnesota’s credit unions.
This fund provides resources to strongly position credit unions on the legislative and political fronts. The Advocacy Fund is proactive in nature, helping to create a strong credit union environment and augment MnCUN’s advocacy efforts. As a restricted fund, expenditures are governed by a committee of credit unions and MnCUN staff.
Minnesota Credit Union Foundation
Focused on financial education and professional development initiatives, the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation is dedicated to providing the resources for credit unions and communities to prosper and thrive. Each year the Foundation commits to fund financial education grants and professional development opportunities for credit union staff and volunteers.
The Credit Union Awareness Fund was established to focus on increasing consumers’ awareness of credit unions through public affairs initiatives, expanding media coverage, and coordinating other visibility opportunities. Expenditures from this fund promote the benefits and value of credit unions, helping to spread the word that credit unions are the best financial choice for consumers. As a restricted fund, expenditures are governed in accordance to the Board’s strategic plan, by the Awareness Fund Committee of credit unions and MnCUN staff.
