“It was so fun to see the look in the RDC employees' eyes when we showed up with all of the winter gear. They were surprised by how much we brought and so thankful to be able to help more refugee families by providing them coats, hats, and gloves during the winter months. It was a great feeling to know that more people could stay warm this year because of the RDC.”— Julia, Credit Union employee

EAST LANSING, MI — MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) is pleased to announce that after a six-month fundraising initiative, Credit Union employees raised $69,415 for the Michigan Youth Opportunities Initiative (MYOI). This is the largest amount ever raised by the Credit Union’s charity committee, surpassing last year’s total of $44,000 raised in support of Haven House.


Throughout the charity campaign, MSUFCU employees hosted various internal fundraisers as well as spent time with the MYOI youth. The Credit Union hosted cooking classes, an ice skating day, and a professional clothing drive, which provided many MYOI youth with professional attire to be used for job interviews and in business settings.


“It’s amazing that we’ve grown to number of employees that allow for us to collectively increase the impact we have upon our community charity partners,” said April Clobes, MSUFCU’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “I’m very proud of what the Credit Union employees have achieved with this donation and what MYOI will have the opportunity to achieve as a result of it.”


MYOI is a program available to Ingham County foster youth that provides mentoring and life skills training. The goal of MYOI is to ensure that young people in foster care have successful outcomes in housing, education, employment, community engagement, and health.


MSU Federal Credit Union, the world’s largest university-based credit union, offers a full range of personal — and business-related financial services to Michigan State University and Oakland University faculty, staff, students, alumni association members, and their families worldwide in addition to a variety of select employee groups.
