“I love being a part of the United Way Committee and seeing how much good we can do when we work together. I think having the committee creates a sense of urgency to give back for the greater good. Seeing how much we raise over the course of a few months is awe-inspiring.”— Julia, Credit Union Employee

MSUFCU Launches Desk Drawer Fund Foundation

Tweet Button

MSU Federal Credit Union was founded in 1937 on the singular goal of helping members achieve their dreams. We have come a long way since MSUFCU was founded out of a desk drawer on MSU’s campus, and much has changed but our core values haven’t. Since our founding, we’ve made giving back a top priority. Now, after 81 years, it’s time to reaffirm our commitment to the community.


We are proud to introduce the Desk Drawer Fund; a foundation supporting the MSUFCU and OUCU communities.


The Desk Drawer Fund provides trustworthy, ethical, and community-oriented opportunities for members and employees to perform charitable giving that makes a visible difference. Our mission is to empower members, employees, and other businesses to contribute to a universal wellbeing by investing in our local communities and helping them flourish. Through funding for a variety of local nonprofits, members and employees alike will have the opportunity to contribute to the public good and make a positive impact.


The foundation will focus on five philanthropic pillars;

• Arts & Culture
• Stable Housing
• Empowering Youth
• Financial Education
• Fostering Entrepreneurialism


We’re excited to continue empowering those in our community to achieve their own goals – just as we did all those years ago, out of a single desk drawer. If you are interested in learning more or donating to the Desk Drawer Fund, please visit deskdrawerfund.org.
