National Partners

To support the efforts of its REAL Solutions® program, NCUF has formed several strategic partnerships designed to bring new information, tested business models and communication platforms to America’s credit union leagues and their credit unions. Working together we can build stronger resources for credit unions allowing them to better serve all of their members.

The Federation
The National Federation of Community Development Credit Unions (Federation) is a certified CDFI Intermediary representing more than 235 community development credit unions (CDCUs). The Federation’s member CDCUs provide credit, savings, transaction services and financial education to more than 1.5 million residents of low-income urban, rural and reservation-based communities across the United States, and hold over $9.5 billion in community-controlled assets. The Federation also represents 50 Community Development Partners, some of the nation’s largest credit unions with a special commitment to serving low-income communities. Founded in 1974, the Federation is headquartered in Lower Manhattan with offices in Colorado Springs, CO; Madison, WI; San Francisco, CA; and Washington, DC. The Federation offers a wide range of advocacy, educational, training, investment, marketing, and outreach programs to support and assist CDCUs.

Annie E. Casey Foundation
The Annie E. Casey Foundation was formed to provide services to better the lives of children, families and communities. Their primary work encompasses building supportive communities, reforming public systems, gathering and evaluating data, promoting equality and achieving results. The Foundation was established by UPS founder Jim Casey and his siblings in honor of their mother. www.aecf.org

The Aspen Institute
The Aspen Institute mission is twofold: to foster values-based leadership, encouraging individuals to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society, and to provide a neutral and balanced venue for discussing and acting on critical issues. The Aspen Institute does this primarily in four ways: Seminars, young leader fellowships, policy programs and public conferences and events. The Institute is based in Washington, DC and Aspen, Colorado and has an international network of partners. www.aspeninstitute.org

ACCION International
The mission of ACCION International is to give people the tools they need to work their way out of poverty. By providing micro-loans, business training and other financial services to poor men and women who start their own businesses, ACCION’s partner lending organizations help people work their own way up the economic ladder, with dignity and pride. With just a little capital, people can grow their own businesses. They can earn enough to afford basics like running water, better food and schooling for their children. www.accion.org
