CU Social Good surpasses 2000 stories from 41 states!
BISMARCK, ND (April 22, 2014) — Credit Union Association of the Dakotas (CUAD) is excited to announce that their website, CU Social Good, has just surpassed the milestone of 2000 posted stories! Launched in January of 2013, CU Social Good has exceeded CUAD’s expectations and has received some positive attention from other credit union leagues, as well as from CUNA. So far, CU Social Good has received story submissions from 41 states and Canada. The nine states that are not represented (yet) are: Alaska, Delaware, Idaho, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
“We are encouraged by the positive response we have received from so many unique credit unions” says CUAD President Robbie Thompson. “Credit unions give back to their local communities in an amazing variety of creative and generous ways, but we don’t always do a great job of telling these stories. CU Social Good provides a platform for just that purpose” he added.
At CU Social Good, you will find these stories of credit unions and credit union people being involved in their communities – helping charities, promoting financial literacy, providing scholarships, volunteering their time, and supporting people and planet over profit. This website can and should be used by all in our industry for legislative lobbying efforts, awareness campaigns, and community relations – but above all – to help generate a new public awareness that will help us to remain successful in our mission for years to come.
We welcome and encourage credit unions from around the country to contribute their stories, and we are particularly hopeful to receive some submissions from the states listed above! You can visit our website at http://www.cusocialgood.com/ to see what has been submitted from your state! Simply put your state’s name in the “Search” option. AND don’t forget to sign up to receive the Spotlight – a once weekly emailed newsletter that highlights some of our favorite stories each week.
