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 operated 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 and Culture
- Stable Housing
- Empowering Youth
- Financial Education
- Fostering Entrepreneurialism
We haven’t forgotten the days of the desk drawer. We haven’t forgotten what it’s like to start from nothing, guided by a common dream. 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.
