The Dakota Credit Union Foundation (DCUF) is a unique shared investment program that strengthens the credit union movement throughout the Dakotas, across the US, and worldwide. You choose to help all credit unions make a difference.

Purpose: To build community awareness of Dakota credit unions through the support of children’s charities; community and social impact organizations or projects; financial education and financial literacy programs through the credit union chapter system; and to provide higher education scholarships throughout our service region in the Dakotas.

Mission: To establish a charitable credit union foundation so that we can sustain long-lasting contributions with a more significant impact on our Dakota credit unions and their communities they serve.
