The Community Investment Fund (CIF) stands as a beacon of social investment within the credit union community, offering a distinctive opportunity for credit unions to contribute to meaningful change both locally in New York and nationwide. This innovative fund channels investments into initiatives that support the growth and impact of credit unions through the New York Credit Union Foundation and the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF), exemplifying a commitment to the broader credit union movement.


How It Works

When your credit union invests in a CIF account, it not only aids in the funding of essential programs and projects but also benefits from a portion of the investment returns. This unique structure ensures that your investment contributes to significant developments within the credit union sector, while also providing financial returns to your institution. It's a win-win situation: your investment promotes impactful work across New York State and the entire country.


Making an Impact with Your Investment

By participating in the CIF, your credit union becomes a pivotal part of a larger effort to enhance financial literacy, support community development, and ensure that credit unions remain vital resources for their members. Your investment helps fund:

  • Innovative financial education programs

  • Community empowerment initiatives

  • Development and research projects aimed at improving credit union services
