Southeastern Credit Union Foundation launches new grant program

The Southeastern Credit Union Foundation (SECUF), the charitable arm of the League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU), announced the launch of its new Growth and Impact Grant Program, which will provide financial assistance to credit unions and chapters in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia.

The program is an extension of SECUF’s existing Professional Development Grant Program. The Growth and Impact Grant Program includes two distinct grant opportunities: The Credit Union Development Grant Program and the SECUF Community Impact Grant Program.

The Credit Union Development Grant Program aims to support the growth and sustainability of credit unions by providing financial aid for projects that improve staff and volunteer development, technology adoption, and operational efficiency.  The program’s primary goal is to empower credit unions with the tools and resources to better serve their members.

The Community Impact Grant Program is designed to fund projects that positively impact the community, such as financial education programs, community development initiatives, and charitable giving efforts. This program will provide support to LSCU-member credit unions and chapters in their efforts to enhance their communities and encourage credit union philanthropy.
