Through credit unions’ impact investing, the Community Investment Fund (CIF) has generated millions of dollars to fund and support local and national financial literacy, development and scholarship initiatives. Started in 1999, the CIF was designed to leverage the interdependence of the credit union system for the greater good. It provides credit unions the opportunity to donate a portion of the dividends earned on certain investments to the both the Minnesota Credit Union Foundation and the National Credit Union Foundation.
The CIF provides a unique vehicle to support financial education, professional development, community outreach and emergency assistance, not only in Minnesota, but across the country as well.
For more information on how the CIF works, please visit the National Credit Union Foundation website or contact Andrea Molnau, Executive Director, Minnesota Credit Union Foundation by email or by phone at 651-288-5527.
