At the beginning of the year, we debuted an Impact Map to highlight the Foundation’s programs, projects, and Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs) in each state. The Impact Map displays to credit unions and credit union professionals what their state is involved in when it comes to Foundation programs and initiatives, such as Biz Kid$, Experiential Learning programs, Non-Prime Auto Lending, Development Education (DE) projects and participants, and more.We have just released the second phase of the Impact Map, which is a “by program” feature to offer a different way to showcase the impact we are having across the United States. When viewing our Impact Map, you can now choose which way you would like to view how we are making a difference – either by state or by program.The “Browse by program” feature provides an interactive way to see which states are using specific Foundation programs, grants, or training’s. For example, if a credit union organization wanted to see which states have participated in the Enhanced FiCEP Program, they could click “Financial Counseling” on the right, and see the highlighted states on the map. Users can also click the “read more” below the map to learn more information about Financial Counseling. continue reading » 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
