What is the Crossroads Community Investment Fund?
The Crossroads Community Investment Fund (CIF) was established in 2009. Each year funds are allocated 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 at which time the CIF committee meets and discusses how the funds will be allocated for the year.
In the past 12 years the fund has allocated over $420,000 to more than 120 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.
- Depending on the quality and number of nominations, preference may be given to:
- Individuals who are members in the nomination process.
- Non-profit organizations & community groups who do business with Crossroads Credit Union.
- If the number of non-profit organizations/community groups exceeds 22, the CIF Committee will make the final selection and will rate the projects-based on eligibility criteria.
- If the number of non-profit organizations or community groups is under 22, the CIF committee will reserve funds for a later date for future projects/programs.
- If only 22 nominations are received, groups do not automatically receive the funding if they do not fall within eligibility criteria.
- If a non-profit organization/community group receives multiple nominations, and fits the eligibility criteria, they will not be awarded more than $2,022.
- Only 1 nomination can be submitted per community member, duplicates will be eliminated. If multiple nominations are submitted by the same individual, we will use the first one submitted by using the time and date.
- Only those nominations selected to receive funding will be contacted.
Community members can nominate a non-profit organization or community group by filling out our online nomination form or by visiting a Crossroads Credit Union branch and asking to use their branch iPad or the self-serve kiosk at our Preeceville branch.

- The non-profit organization/community group must support one of the following areas:
