Who We Are

The Ohio Credit Union Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charitable foundation, is the philanthropic arm of the Ohio Credit Union League. The OCUF was incorporated in December 1997, began fundraising in 1998, and made its first grants in 1999. 

What We Do
The Ohio Credit Union Foundation is active in and dedicated to:

... Promoting financial education to benefit credit union members, Ohio students, and the public at large;
... Helping credit unions implement programs within their communities that fulfill their social responsibility to make financial services affordable and accessible to all members, including those of modest means, or to areas in financial distress;
... Providing professional development grants to assist credit union employees and volunteer leaders with the training to achieve professional excellence;
... Offering financial relief to credit unions, their employees, members, and their communities in the wake of disasters such as floods, earthquakes, tornadoes, or fires; and
... Empowering people to improve their financial well-being, based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, and equity.
