America’s Credit Union Museum Surpasses $2M in Pledges
Wednesday, September 23, 2015 6:45 AM

America’s Credit Union Museum announced Monday that it has surpassed $2 million in pledges toward its $3.3 million Legacy Capital Campaign goal.

Museum Executive Director Stephanie Smith specifically cited Metro CU, Chelsea, MA, and Redwood CU, Santa Rosa, CA, for their financial support. “These credit unions join our other campaign supporters in recognizing the importance of preserving, capturing, and communicating the unique values and principles of credit unions,” Smith said.

In February, CUNA signed on as the campaign’s lead sponsor. CUNA’s $1 million pledge will fund what will be known as the “CUNA Research Center.”

The Legacy Capital Campaign will use funds to create both a physical and electronic industry research center, making the industry’s history more accessible, and to add additional exhibit space and improve conference facilities to continue serving as a catalyst for the education and growth of credit union professionals.

"Our proud history is captured at America's Credit Union Museum," said Cornerstone Credit Union League President and CEO Dick Ensweiler. "It vividly demonstrates our rich heritage and the basis for strategic goals and direction going forward. I highly encourage credit unions to support this capital campaign, which will upgrade and enhance this valuable resource as well as add office space and a research facility."
