This year the Foundation Bash continued the tradition of fun and credit union celebration at a sold-out party with 300 friends! Credit unions from all over Kansas and Missouri came together to reconnect, dance, and donate in style. Supporters of Heartland’s Got Talent (HGT), both at the Bash and at home, gave $10,932 to support the work of the Foundation! If you missed it, you can still view the videos of our talented HGT fundraisers

We are so close to our fundraising goal for the Leon G. Kusnetzky Fund. Join us in supporting our small credit unions with grants and professional development scholarships by making a donation to this fund.  Your donation will be matched by the generosity of the Kusnetzky family. 

And we can’t forget a huge thank you to our amazing Supporting Sponsors for making the Bash possible this year! (Credit Union of America, CUNA Mutual Group, First Community Credit Union, Meritrust Credit Union, Millennium Corporate Credit Union, and Together Credit Union) They had so much fun with us too. Don’t take our word for it! 

“While CUNA Mutual Group has supported the Foundation for years, I’m new to this region and this was my second year at the Bash. It definitely won’t be my last! I loved learning about what the Foundation does, and chose to give to their mission personally. CUNA Mutual is proud to support the Foundation and the credit unions of HCUA, and this is definitely a fun way to do it!”
Ramsay Ellis, CUNA Mutual Group. 

“There’s nothing like a party with a purpose and the HCUCF made us all proud with the 2021 Bash. Celebrating the impact of the Foundation while kicking up our heels with our credit union family from across the heartland and raising more money to further our cherished movement was a true representation of our cooperative roots and let’s be honest, a whole lot of fun!”
Circe Gleeson, Millennium Corporate Credit Union
