Crane Credit Union CEO Kevin Sparks was elected to serve as Vice Chairman.
The Indiana Credit Union Foundation awarded professional development scholarships for 2019 in the amount of $24,686 to 33 people from Indiana credit unions and is currently accepting applications for 2020 scholarships. The Foundation is also a long-time supporter of the National Credit Union Foundation and its Biz Kids$ financial literacy program. The Foundation’s 2020 financial literacy efforts also include using a grant from NCUF to develop a Bite of Reality app for use by students participating in Reality Fairs. Bit of Reality kits will be developed for credit unions to use in connection with the app. The Foundation is seeking credit union participants in Indiana for Reality Fair partnerships.
