NetGiver and CUSocialGood® have announced they are joining together to invigorate and revitalize the credit union impact story. The two organizations have been independently gathering data on the social and community impact of credit unions and their members, and now will combine their efforts and invaluable data under one umbrella.
CUSocialGood will unveil the new platform in 2022 with a renewed dedication to advocacy for the unique value of credit unions.
“Both of our organizations feel a deep sense of responsibility to serve our local communities and bring awareness to the benefits of credit unions,” said Dakota Credit Union Association President/CEO Jeff Olson. “With this partnership and NetGiver’s approach to innovation, CUSocialGood will go beyond today’s blog site to become the education and advocacy platform we’ve always known it could be.”
CUSocialGood was started in 2013 by Dakota Credit Union Association as an advocacy tool in response to South Dakota bankers’ attacks on the credit union tax exempt status. Under this new partnership, NetGiver – the charitable giving CUSO – will harness the stories of CUSocialGood for reporting, and the creation of toolkits and resources for credit unions, nonprofits, leagues and advocacy bodies.
