Self(ie)less Contributions from Forum 2020 Attendees Raise Funds for the NCUF

by Catalyst Corporate | Nov 03, 2020

Seeing friendly faces and connecting with credit union colleagues at Catalyst Corporate’s Economic & Payments Forum has become somewhat of a tradition. And although this year’s event took on a new form, we vowed to deliver the same personal and engaging conference experience attendees have come to know and expect. Only this time, we activated selfies and social media for a great cause!

Attendees received a pair of Catalyst Corporate sunglasses in their Forum Engagement Box, along with brief instructions on how to participate in a social media fundraiser. All donations benefited the National Credit Union Foundation. By snapping a selfie in their shades and sharing it to Catalyst Corporate’s Facebook page, Catalyst Corporate made a $10 contribution to the foundation on their behalf.

The smiling selfies flooded in over the course of the two-day virtual event, with participants stretching from coast-to-coast! The social media activity helped raise $1,000 for the foundation’s good work in the credit union system.

We’ve compiled a fun graphic from some of the selfie contributions. Click here to view it and see if you recognize a face of foundation support!
