National CU Foundation Offers Specialty Grants

NCUF Launches 2020 Grant Cycle with Focus on Financial Health & Well-Being

“If there was ever a time to document what credit unions are doing to improve their members’ and employees’ financial lives, it’s during this crisis,” notes Gigi Hyland, Foundation Executive Director. “This pandemic has put a glaring spotlight on how many of us are financially fragile. Our grants efforts this year focus on telling the story of how credit unions are meeting that challenge and testing a split deposit intervention with employees to see whether it moves the needle on financial well-being.”

The Foundation’s 2020 Grant cycle has two opportunities for credit unions:

  1. “Start at Home”: A strategy that focuses on financial well-being always starts at home with employees. Employees can be equally financially fragile as the members they serve. This grant effort seeks to This grant effort seeks to increase credit union employee financial well-being through one discreet savings initiative: Building short term savings through split deposit. “Splitting” a direct deposit is the ability to automatically direct a fixed percentage or dollar amount of pay into a savings or investment account. The overarching goal of this grant effort is to have impact — specifically to rigorously test this evidence-based intervention that has strong potential to build financial resilience among credit union employees and to be scaled within and across credit unions. This effort will be a collaboration with select researchers from around the country to help selected credit unions test split deposits with employees. Click here to see the full application for “Start at Home”.


  1. “Tell Your Story”: A great deal of work has been done in the credit union system around financial well-being and now is the time to tell the story of the journey to date. The Foundation is seeking credit unions who have financial well-being as a key component of their strategy to share their impact stories. Specifically, credit unions will be asked to document: the financial well-being challenge faced by members and/or the community; the intervention (e.g., product, service, counseling, relationship, etc.) the credit union took to address the challenge and improve financial health and well-being; and the transformation the credit union measured as a result of its work (e.g., 500 members improved their credit score from X to Y; $X in debt was reduced because of the intervention, etc.). Click here to see the full application for “Tell Your Story”.


These opportunities are only available to credit unions. The deadline for credit unions to submit their applications is July 15, 2020.  The Foundation will review all applications for each credit union’s financial capacity and commitment to improving members’ and employees’ financial well-being that directly support the stated application objectives.

How Leveraging Agility Will Help You Meet Uncertainty Head-On
Tammie Harvey, Director of Continuous Improvement and Agile Execution, CUNA Mutual Group Ashley Utz, Vice President, Human Resources, CUNA Mutual Group

Now, more than ever, we are faced with rapidly changing conditions, multifaceted problems and a whole lot of uncertainty of what is to come. Leading is more complex than ever. It is requiring us to think about and adjust the way we work and how we serve our customers and employees now and into the future.  We will share some of the strategies that are helping us lean into this uncertainty with confidence!

Maximize Credit Unions’ Non-Interest Income
Bob Larson and Jeff Davenport, Financial Consultants, CUNA Mutual Group Today’s unprecedented economic conditions will greatly impact credit unions’ Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), and, in particular, credit union earnings. In order to be there for your members and to keep regulators satisfied, credit unions must explore every aspect of their income statement to leverage additional income. Learn strategies to sustain and improve your Non-Interest Income revenue stream and explore industry best practices to help with your strategy.

Multicultural Consumers—The Good, The Bad and The Opportunity.
Edgar Hernandez and Opal Tomashevska, Sr. Managers of Multicultural Business Strategy, CUNA Mutual Group

The Good: By 2030 multicultural consumers will make up the majority of the U.S. population, a growth that will bring new opportunities for empathetic and savvy organizations.

The Bad: Some businesses are still looking retrospectively at how the consumer landscape “used to be,” and not at how “it will be.” This will not only limit their ability to connect with new consumers, but also limit their ability to attract diverse talent.

The Opportunity: Recent events have amplified differences in income, healthcare access and discrimination toward people of color that had been less visible to the general population, and this is presenting new challenges that will require novel solutions.  Is your credit union ready to connect with this market?
