Credit unions across New York are improving their communities and empowering people of all ages to become financially independent. And every step of the way, the New York Credit Union Foundation is supporting them.

By providing grants and other financial aid, the Foundation helps credit unions:

  • Teach critical financial skills to adults, youth and children
  • Enhance member service with new technologies and initiatives
  • Provide staff and volunteers with training opportunities
  • Distribute relief funds to those impacted by natural disasters

Each grant the Foundation provides helps strengthen the entire New York credit union community. So when you support the Foundation, you're doing much more than donating to a charity. You're investing in credit unions, their members and the powerful legacy of "people helping people."
