Why Should Leagues/Associations Get Involved?
REAL Solutions® offers important outreach activities to people of low or moderate incomes, new Americans, the un-banked and under-banked – people who are often locked out of affordable saving and borrowing opportunities. As not-for-profit, member-owned organizations, credit unions were conceptually designed to meet the financial needs of their members, regardless of members’ wealth.
REAL Solutions® isn’t a particular program or service; it’s a commitment by credit unions to offer financial solutions to improve the lives of their members and strengthen their communities. The good news is that most credit unions are already offering products and services to help members of modest means improve their financial well-being.
The goal of the REAL Solutions® program is to document and measure the impact credit unions are having within their respective states. That’s where leagues can step in and spearhead the REAL Solutions® effort in their state to get their member credit unions formally involved.
State leagues can serve as a catalyst to bring credit unions together to share ideas and best practices and to explore new opportunities to help people of limited means. Through REAL Solutions®, these best practices and innovative ideas are gathered together to form a national resource pool from which all can draw. It’s the ultimate concept of a cooperative movement.
