The Minnco Credit Union Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization was established by Minnco Credit Union in 2017, to support financial education in our schools and charitable initiatives in our communities.
The Minnco Foundation supports financial literacy and charitable initiatives in our communities.
Minnco has sponsored an online financial education program in partnership with Banzai in our high schools for the last four years at no cost to the schools. We have sponsored seven schools and reached over 1300 students. We have also given many presentations on financial education at many of our local schools and colleges. The Foundation will continue to help support our schools and teachers with Financial Education and funds for students and teachers.
In 2021, the Foundation sponsored an online and workbook based financial education program in six high schools. The sponsorship was formed through a partnership with Banzai using their curriculum. The areas covered in the program include savings, budgeting, credit scores, financing higher education, renting vs. owning, unexpected expenses and more. The Foundation reached over 304 students at 6 schools with Banzai in the 2021 school year. The high schools sponsored are:
In March 2021, the Foundation and the credit union partnered to raise money and food for local food shelves. The Foundation raised over $27,000 for local food shelves.

We purchased the Route 66 warranty for our Chevy pick up. It was a great decision because the transmission went out on us 6 months later. The warranty saved us $3,300. The only thing we had to pay was the sales tax of the transmission. They were so wonderful to work with and it was so easy. We strongly recommend investing in the Route 66 warranty!
I love it when I come through the drive through and they know who I am and call me by name. This is personal service which is missed in the world today. It makes me feel like I am valued by Minnco.Emilie B.
