When you invest in the Community Investment Fund (CIF), you become an integral partner in the shaping of social initiatives of the National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF). NCUF's Community Investment Fund is an award-winning philanthropic model that enables the credit union community to invest in a traditional deposit account, and contribute a portion of the interest earned to support NCUF's national grant programs as well as the good works of the Louisiana Credit Union Foudation. By investing in the CIF's General Fund, you help to expand the capacity of credit unions in Louisiana to serve their members and their communities, while earning a return for your credit union.How it Works:
Credit unions investing in CIF receive 50 percent of the dividend of their investment. The remaining 50 percent is distributed to the National Credit Union Foundation, half of which the Foundation returns, pro-rata, to the state foundations. The National Credit Union Foundation has placed a cap of 2% on the portion of the dividend they are to receive. Therefore, any dividend over four percent is returned to the credit union.
