FORUM Credit Union announces 2017 member giveback and savings winners

INDIANAPOLIS, IN (January 30, 2018) — As a financial cooperative, FORUM is committed to give back to its members through a variety of savings and prize based rewards.  In 2017, FORUM Credit Union proudly returned $1.7 million in rewards to members.

As one of the savings and prize based rewards given to members in 2017, FORUM randomly selected one member with a Weekly 5 Savings Account who was awarded a grand prize of $5,000.  The Weekly 5 Savings Account is a prize-based savings account where members make regular account deposits to win weekly and annual cash prizes, valued at $50, $250, $1,000, and $5,000. This is just one of the many savings accounts FORUM offers to help you save and manage your money.

Longtime FORUM member and grand prize Weekly 5 winner, Gregory H., checks his Weekly 5 Account every week for prizes, and was selected from thousands of qualifying members who use the Weekly 5 Account as a savings tool.  “I have been a member since 1989, and the Weekly 5 Account is a great way to save,” Gregory said.  “I was thrilled to hear I won the grand prize! It’s a perfect start to the new year.”

In addition to the Weekly 5 winner, FORUM also awarded a grand prize to a participant of the 52 Week Money Challenge.  This incremental savings plan helps members save $1,378 over the course of 52 weeks.  Those who successfully save $1,378 and make a deposit 50 out of the 52 weeks are entered to win an additional $1,378.

Not only does FORUM give back to members through checking account and credit card rewards, the FORUM Foundation provided nearly $165,000 in educator grants and scholarships in 2017.
