Community Rewards Recipients

In addition to helping members reach their financial goals, Nusenda Credit Union is also committed to supporting the community initiatives members care about.

With every signature-based transaction made by a member with a Nusenda Visa® debit card, Nusenda contributes a cash reward to the community category of the member’s choice; the Nusenda Foundation is responsible for distribution of those funds.

In 2022 the Nusenda Foundation distributed $630 thousand to 104 grant recipients statewide that are positively impacting the communities they serve. Nusenda’s Community Rewards program supports programs in five impact areas: Education, Healthcare, The Arts, Environment and Wildlife, and Community Services and Support.
