The Northwest Credit Union Foundation (NWCUF) is a 501 (c)(3) organization that engages in activities and programs to benefit Northwest credit unions and their communities, including providing professional development scholarships, small credit union development, public education and community outreach grants to support credit union success.
The NWCUF Board of Trustees is comprised of eleven (11) seats. Eight (8) seats represent the eight geographic districts of the Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA) and three seats represent the credit union asset categories of the Association. The Board is also comprised of up to five at-large seats, with representatives seated by the board through recommendation.
The charge of each board member is to actively promote and support the mission, vision, and objectives of the NWCUF. In addition to overseeing the Foundation’s budget and setting policies for its overall management and operation, NWCUF board members are expected to establish short and long-term goals for the Foundation, actively promote the Foundation within the credit union movement, cultivate donors and work to raise funds, and promote the Foundation’s relationship with its partners, among other duties.
