Community Investment Fund

Catalyst Corporate and the National Credit Union Foundation (the Foundation) partner to give credit unions numerous investment options for supporting the Community Investment Fund (CIF) – a way to help consumers access education, tools and resources to achieve financial freedom through credit unions.

The CIF allows credit unions to invest in Catalyst corporate certificates of deposit or a 90-day notice share account, while donating a percentage of the interest earned to the CIF – a donation that helps national and state credit union foundations.

Why support CIF?

  • Credit unions earn revenue while giving back to the movement.
  • A wide range of investment options is available to ensure balance sheet needs are met.
  • Charitable contributions are made from investment returns rather than operating income.
  • It's easy.
