Applications Are Open for the Southeastern Credit Union Foundation Growth and Impact Grant Program

The Southeastern Credit Union Foundation (SECUF), the charitable arm of the League of Southeastern Credit Unions (LSCU), is excited to announce that applications are now open for the Growth and Impact Grant Program. The Growth and Impact Grant Program includes three distinct grant opportunities: the Credit Union Development Grant, the Community Impact Grant, and the Professional Development Grant.

The Credit Union Development Grant Program aims to support the growth and sustainability of credit unions by providing financial assistance for projects that improve staff and volunteer development, technology adoption, operational efficiency, and innovation. 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 provides support to LSCU-member credit unions and chapters in their efforts to enhance their communities and encourage credit union philanthropy.

The Professional Development Grant Program offers professional development grants year-round to credit union CEOs, employees, board members, and supervisory committee members. These grants allow for participation in educational events organized by LSCU and America’s Credit Unions (formally the Credit Union National Association (CUNA)). These opportunities support ongoing learning journeys, enhance the understanding of the credit union industry, and foster professional leadership growth.

SECUF has allocated a total of $150,000 for the Growth and Impact Grant Program to support credit unions and chapters in their efforts to create a meaningful impact for their staff and volunteers, members they serve, and their communities.
