On Thursday, during the Southwest Lending Conference in Oklahoma City, Executive Committee of the Cornerstone Lending Council presented a check for $10,000 to the Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation.

The mission of the Council is to serve the credit union movement as a premier association dedicated exclusively to supporting credit union lending practices, research, development, and evaluation. It was the Council’s third donation to the Foundation.

"The Lending Council firmly believes in education," said Chairman Mike Roark. "Our industry is changing rapidly, and we believe it is our responsibility to provide quality educational and training opportunities. We have been successful in these endeavors and feel obligated to pay it forward to an organization whose mission we feel truly makes a difference in the Cornerstone region."

Foundation Executive Director Courtney Moran was on hand to accept the check. "The Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation is extremely grateful for the Lending Council’s generosity," said Moran. "Support such as this enables us to make a difference, one credit union, one member, and one community at a time.”
