EAST LANSING, Mich. — MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) is pleased to announce a $500 donation to the Michigan Arbor Day Alliance (MADA) as a result of a recent eStatement promotion. During the promotion, employees in the branches, Call Center, and eServices departments helped 1,537 members convert from paper statements to eStatements.


“This eStatement promotion not only educated our members about their options when it comes to receiving their statements, it enabled us to support one of our community partners, the Michigan Arbor Day Alliance,” said Whitney Anderson – Harrell, MSUFCU’s Chief Community Development Officer. “With the number of members who converted to eStatements, we were able to make a $500 donation to this outstanding organization, helping create a more vibrant and green community. MSUFCU offers an eStatement option for accounts to support the greening of the Greater Lansing community which also supports MADA’s mission as well.”


The Credit Union has had an ongoing partnership with MADA, a coalition of organizations dedicated to celebrating Arbor Day and the important role trees play in community health and wellbeing, since 2013. Together, MSUFCU and MADA help provide local students with the opportunity to learn about the importance of forestry and natural resources. Over the course of the partnership more than 500 trees have been planted by MSUFCU employee volunteers in the Greater Lansing area.
