The 2018 CU Succeed Youth Bursary campaign is months away, yet two credit unions, Alterna Savings and Luminus Financial, were quick to pledge their support.

The campaign will run in May 2018 and has two elements. Credit unions are invited to participate in the fundraising campaign for a week (or two) in May. Additionally, we hope all our member credit unions will promote the CU Succeed Youth Bursary to their members in May and June.

Over the past two years we provided $111,000 in bursaries to deserving post-secondary students from across Ontario. Awards range from $1,000 to $2,500. Our fundraising efforts from this year’s Golf Classic and CU Succeed Youth Bursary campaign allow us to offer $75,000 in bursaries in 2018.

Alterna Savings marketing spokesperson Tanya Hart proclaimed “Alterna is in! I already have an idea who we might challenge to see who raises the most funds.”

OCUF Board member, and Luminus Financial CEO, George De La Rosa commented, “Luminus was proud to have raised the most funds in the 2017 campaign. We look forward to having as much fun in May.”

The 2017 branch campaign raised $8,273, our goal is to double that in 2018.
