Crossroads Community Investment Fund

Building a strong foundation for our communities to build upon.

What is the Crossroads Community Investment Fund?

The Crossroads Community Investment Fund (CIF) was established in 2009 and each year funds are alllocated to non-profit organizations that support community development.  The purpose of the Community Investment Fund is to provide a strong foundation to build upon and enhance the quality of life for the people in Crossroads Country.

Each year a set amount of funding is allocated towards the fund.  Once the CIF opens for applications in June, non-profit organizations can apply for funding up until the closing date at the end of August. Once the closing date passes, the CIF committee reviews the applications and chooses which projects will receive funding as well as three projects that will have a chance to receive major funding (amount varies each year).  Once those three projects are selected, the membership gets to determine which project will receive the major funding through an online voting process which takes place at the end of September. 

In the past 11 years the fund has allocated over $418,000 to more than 130 community projects and initiatives! 

We are proud of our cooperative roots and helping our communities will always be a priority.

It's about grassroots, hometowns and cooperation.  That's the Credit Union Difference.

When can we apply?

The Community Inve​stment Fund opens for applications at the beginning of June.
