 Why should you support the Pennsylvania and New Jersey Credit Union Foundations?

Simply put, because we're better together. Individually, we can all have an impact, but when we combine our resources, that impact dramatically expands. Together we can help others on a scale that wouldn't be possible alone. Please join us in making Pennsylvania and New Jersey residents financially fit, and our communities strong stable economic forces in our country.

Your support makes it possible for the Foundations to proudly promote the credit union philosophy of People Helping People to obtain financial independence by supporting financial literacy and educational initiatives, small credit union assistance, professional development of credit union staff and volunteers and disaster relief support for credit union communities.

Honor or Tribute Gift

The Foundations have established Honor and Memorial Donation Programs to help recognize credit union leaders and others, while supporting the work of the Foundation. Donations are used to help credit unions in need, to provide personal finance education, and to help the credit union movement grow. Honor Donations may be made to the Foundation in the name of the recipient in recognition of a retirement, birthday, holiday, or simply in appreciation of a job well done. The Foundation will send an attractive greeting card to the person being honored. Memorial donations are another unique and thoughtful way to remember family and friends, while supporting the work of the Foundation. To recognize your gift, an acknowledgement card identifying you as the donor will be sent to whomever you designate. The amount of your gift will not be disclosed to the recipient. For either tribute, if you would like to present the card yourself simply contact the Foundation.
