You can strengthen Cornerstone credit unions, $1 at a time

Your donation to the Cornerstone Foundation through payroll deduction is sustainable, secure, and easy.

Payroll deduction offers the opportunity for you to help others and feel confident that your dollars will be well spent in your credit union communities. It’s as simple as donating $1 or $2 per paycheck. These dollars are so small that when automatically deducted from your paycheck, they don’t affect your budget.

Payroll deduction for the Foundation is the cooperative spirit in action.      

“Make giving seamless and stress-free by setting up payroll deduction for our Cornerstone Foundation,” said Jennifer Grinder from Resource One Credit Union. “After I set up the deduction with HR, I made a difference for others and never missed the money from my budget. I would like to challenge others in our region to donate $1 per week. If our credit unions or employees are in need, the Foundation is there for us. Let’s all return the support in 2022!”

The Foundation receives a small percentage from Cornerstone members that participate in payroll deduction. Imagine if just 20% of the approximately 28,000 credit union staff in the Cornerstone region elected to contribute $2 per paycheck. More than $260,000 could be raised to further YOUR Foundation’s mission.

That’s the strength of your impact! 

You choose the amount and how your dollars are spent:

  • Cornerstone Foundation’s General Fund
  • Southwest CUNA Management School Scholarship Fund
  • Disaster Relief Fund
