Register Today for a CIF Informational Webinar

The Community Investment Fund (CIF) is a unique, social investment vehicle offering win/win/win opportunities to achieve financial freedom through credit unions.  

Catalyst Corporate FCU, the National Credit Union Foundation, and Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation are partnering to give credit unions a renewed and re-energized CIF option.

This new alliance allows credit unions to invest in either government-issued securities or negotiable CDs while donating a percentage of earned interest to the CIF—in turn, supporting both the National and Cornerstone Credit Union Foundations. Securities and share certificates may be purchased through Catalyst Corporate FCU and will be held in safekeeping at Alaska USA Trust Company.

Why support CIF?

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

Please attend the informational webinar on Tuesday, Aug. 30 at 10:30 a.m. to learn more about the new investment vehicle and CIF in general. To register, visit the Foundation's website at
