A New Year of Giving

By Beth Cutler, Director of Corporate Social Responsibility

CUNA Mutual Foundation's 50th Anniversary
As we celebrate the life and accomplishments of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the start of the new year, I naturally reflect on our company’s past accomplishments related to giving back.

Each and every day, our employees come to work serving our customers across the United States and parts of the Caribbean, and their efforts do not stop here.

In 2017, our employees took their passion for serving others into their communities, clocking more than 6,000 hours! Their dedication and passion has driven the success of our company, and as the CUNA Mutual Foundation celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, we are grateful to each and every one of them. It is because of them that we are celebrating fifty years, and look forward to another fifty.

Fifty years is a major milestone and one we are very proud of. To recognize our Foundation’s 50th anniversary, rather than hold a party, we will be highlighting non-profit and credit union industry organizations that make an impact. We want to celebrate those who make serving others a core mission of theirs too.

I hope that many of you are making it a day “on,” and not a day off today. While 2017 is a wrap, I look forward to sharing our corporate social responsibility work with you in 2018. Maybe it’s no coincidence that we start off each New Year with quotes like this from Dr. King; Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, "What are you doing for others?"
