Learn more about our initiative
Our mission here at the GWUCUI is to strengthen the GW community by helping students and alumni bank cheaply, build credit, better manage their finances and develop valuable skill sets that they can bring to their careers. We seek to accomplish this goal by chartering a student-run Credit Union. A credit union is essentially a non-profit bank. This allows us to not only provide small loans at a low rate, but also provide more interest on members deposits! In addition to banking services, we will offer a unique credit building program that builds their credit score and knowledge of their finances. All these services aim to empower the GW community while also providing job experience for GW students interested in any fields. You can help us achieve our goals to service the GW community by donating or joining our initiative!
Check out our progress
This initiative began in Thurston Hall #802 in September, 2017. We are a 501(c)4 designated nonprofit corporation in DC. 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.
