Through the unique Uplifting Others Fund, local nonprofits can apply for assistance on behalf of a client they are serving whose food, shelter or health is at risk. Examples could include a simple reason such as the need to buy groceries, but we also support situations that inspire a "ripple effect" such as fixing a client's car so they can get to work and earn money to pay their rent/mortgage.
The Uplifting Others Fund is supported by funds that Credit Union 1 donates on behalf of members who finance loans with us. For every consumer loan, we’ll donate $1 to this fund. For every real estate loan, we’ll donate $10. Now, when you finance a CU1 loan toward your own life goals – or refinance an existing loan to Credit Union 1 – you’re making a much larger impact on the lives of those around you. That’s #CU1LUV at work, and we’re grateful for your support!
