Learn more about our initiative
We want to provide financial services to GW students and alumni while facilitating several philanthropic goals in the DC metropolitan area. Our initiative is hoping to raise both the awareness and funds necessary to making GW's first Federal Credit Union a reality. You can help us achieve this goal by either donating or joining our initiative! Unlike a bank, our credit union will be a non-profit organization, which means we can offer small loans at a discounted rate while simultaneously paying more interest into our members' savings accounts! In addition to these services, our credit union will offer checking accounts, savings accounts and a unique credit building program to help our members both understand and build their credit score. All of these services will benefit our members while also providing useful job experience for GW students interested in a variety of fields.
Check out our progress
This initiative began in Thurston Hall #802 in September, 2017. We are a nonprofit corporation in DC awaiting 501(c)3 designation. At the 2018 GWU New Venture Competition finals, we won $5,500 in cash and additional material support valued at $15,500. Our grassroots fundraising efforts have raised an additional $200 of support. Our student-run investment committee manages a portfolio that allows us passively grow our savings and offers career-development skills to our volunteers. We have built active relationships with GWU faculty, administrators and partners in the Credit Union industry. We are reviewing generous contracts from multiple vendors who have offered us their banking platforms and the opportunity to offer innovative new security technologies to our members completely free of charge for at least two years.
