Credit Union Employees Team Up with the TruStone Financial ...

TruStone Financial Federal Credit Union employees recently raised $670 for the Hope Council on Alcohol & Other Drug Abuse, a non-profit based in Kenosha, Wisconsin. A dollar-for-dollar match of funds by the TruStone Financial Foundation allowed for a donation totaling $1,340 to the local organization.

Since 1968, the Hope Council has been committed to reducing the impact of drug and alcohol abuse in the Kenosha community. The Hope Council provides education, prevention, intervention and referral services to support those affected by drug and alcohol abuse. "TruStone Financial has two branches in Kenosha and our employees are able to see firsthand the impact the Hope Council has on the community," said Kacie Osten, Vice President, Director of Wisconsin Branches. "Our employees were excited to donate to an organization that directly impacts our community."

"We at the Hope Council on Alcohol & Other Drug Abuse are so grateful for the financial support we received from the staff at TruStone Financial," shared Guida Brown, Executive Director of the Hope Council. "Breaking down the stigma around substance use disorders and ensuring people get assistance is an effort the entire community needs to be part of, and we are grateful that we can count on the support from our neighborhood credit union to help us realize our mission.

PSCU sponsors 2017 credit union development education ...

ST. PETERSBURG, FL (July 27, 2017) — PSCU , the nation’s leading CUSO, was a proud sponsor of the National Credit Union Foundation’s Development Education (DE) Workshop in Tampa on July 11-13. The focus for this year’s workshop was diversity and inclusion, and why inclusion is so important to credit unions. The workshop builds upon the foundational DE training, such as critical lessons in cooperative principles, credit union philosophy and international development issues, while incorporating other challenges that credit unions face today.

The mission of the DE program is to promote credit unions’ social responsibility and domestic and international development through interactive adult education and professional networking. By linking credit unions’ past and present, the program brings renewed relevance to credit unions¹ seven cooperative principles and the philosophy of “People Helping People.”

The workshop was hosted at the Suncoast Credit Union headquarters in Tampa while PSCU proudly sponsored the Opening Reception dinner on the first day of the workshop. In addition to networking opportunities, the workshop allows credit union professionals from across the country to sharpen their skills in credit union outreach initiatives, technical assistance, public presentations and become passionate advocates of the credit union philosophy. Graduates of the workshop also earn certification as Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs).

What socially responsible, local, community-oriented bank is located within the Logan Square area of Chicago?

The ideal answer would be a non-profit banking institution, such as a credit union. Sadly, a search I have already undertaken did not yield any results.

While I don't know if they have many North Side locations, South Shore bank is a really interesting, community focused institution. They focus on building the community through local investments. I'm not sure of their profit status however.
