DCUC donates to credit union organizations
WASHINGTON, DC (December 28, 2020) — To close out the year, DCUC has donated to four credit union organizations: America’s Credit Union Museum, the Cooperative Trust, the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF), and the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU).
“DCUC recognizes the impact our credit union system partners have in making our world a better place for people to live, work, and play,” shared Anthony Hernandez, President/CEO, DCUC. “Likewise, our military has the same mission outcomes. Which is why defense credit unions, and their focus on serving our military, continue to grow! Thus, we see ourselves as a strong mission partner in our industry, which is why these donations matter.”
All four of these credit union organizations do outstanding work and were chosen for their impact on the credit union industry, and in particular, the defense credit union community. America’s Credit Union Museum has the important role in capturing the credit union movement’s history, which is key to understanding the impact that defense credit unions make every day. The Cooperative Trust helps shape the future leaders of the credit union movement and DCUC wants to help ensure that tomorrow’s leaders understand the role credit unions play in serving military and veteran communities. NCUF has always been known for their outstanding work, particularly where credit unions serve the military and veterans through exceptional educational programs. Finally, defense credit unions are the only credit unions that serve internationally and WOCCU is also overseas supporting them every step of the way.
DCUC is grateful for this opportunity to give back. These donations are possible thanks to DCUC’s partial ownership of the Armed Forces Financial Network (AFFN) and their commitment to “Serving Our Troops One Transaction at a Time.”
