NUFCU is proud to contribute to the success of our members and our university community through contributions, donation drives, access to resources and staff volunteering. For our community to be successful, we believe it is our calling to promote financial responsibility and educate our members to foster financial intelligence. We support organizations that share our passion to assist children and families' education, physical health, housing, and environment.
Holiday Donation Drives
Annually, NUFCU participates in the Star City Stocking Stuffers donation drive to provide toys and gifts for distribution through the Community Action Program in Lincoln and the Salvation Army's Angel Tree program in Kearney. In 2020, our staff also donated to the Lincoln Food Bank and the Jubilee Food Pantry in Kearney and invited members to participate during the holiday season as well. We received an overwhelming response and made mulitple trips to drop off toys and food for the four charitable organizations.
Letters From Santa
During the holiday season, NUFCU also participates in the Letters From Santa program through the Nebraska League Credit Unions. Letters From Santa raises funds for Children's Miracle Network. In 2020, our letter requests were nearly double previous years averages. Thank you to everyone who donated. The elves took Santa's letters to the post office on December 8.
