We’re very excited to announce the launch of our new website on December 10th! Along with a more modern look, the site is easy to navigate and offers some great features including a visual timeline of our history and a section dedicated to finding our members the right products and services based on their stage in life. There will also be some member story videos so you can hear more about MCU from those who know us best!
Stay tuned to next week!
Momentum recently learned that one of our very special members named Rhielle is battling a form of cancer called Neuroblastoma. Rhielle is 6 months old and is currently undergoing chemotherapy and will soon be getting a stem cell transplant.
MCU has decided that in lieu of donating the proceeds of our Momentum Toque sale to MomentumCARES, they will be directed to Rhielle and her family to help with some of the costs of her medical care.
From now until December 24th, you can help support Rhielle by buying a Momentum Toque for $10. MCU will still be matching all proceeds. You can also help by buying a Candy Cane for a minimum donation of $1. Visit a branch for more details and to make your donation.
Winter is here and what better way to stay warm than to slip on a Momentum Toque! Our branches are currently selling MCU toques for $10 with all proceeds being donated to MomentumCARES, our community investment fund that supports non-profit organizations in our communities.
And it gets better…for every toque sold, Momentum will match the donation turning your $10 into $20 for MomentumCARES.
Hurry in because once they’re gone, they’re gone!
Momentum is proudly participating in the “My Credit Union Matters!” campaign recently launched by Credit Union Central of Canada.
Credit Unions across the country are urging the federal government to implement a Capital Growth Tax Credit that would provide credit unions an estimated $700 million in lending power to small businesses, farmers, and families while helping them compete on the same level as banks.
Credit Unions matter to the national economy and we’re sure it matters to you! We’re encouraging our members and partners to visit the campaign website at www.MyCUmatters.ca to send a letter to your local MP about why credit unions matter and share a story about credit unions and the difference they make in the community.
