NCUF’s REAL Solutions® program is financially supported through the Community Investment Fund. Investors in CIF donate half of the dividends they receive from a specified investment to NCUF’s General Fund. NCUF, in turn, dedicates half of its portion to national programs that includes REAL Solutions®. The other half of the dividend is returned to the investor’s state credit union foundation or league.
What is REAL Solutions…
“League staff continually remarks that they are amazed how much they learn about so many things by being involved in REAL Solutions. They say learn about what their credit unions are doing and what they want to do in a way they never have before. They say they learn about the innovative things that credit unions around the country are doing. They also say they appreciate learning about what other leagues are doing.”

“Many credit union partners have said that while cooperation at a state level is common in the governmental affairs field, in recent years it has been lost in the areas of product and program development. Credit unions have welcomed how REAL Solutions has brought back cooperation in these areas.”
