The UW Credit Union operates a branch at the Madison College Truax location. Credit Union staff are familiar with the daily challenges facing students who often work, attend class and care for families and wanted to expand their commitment to student success.
The UW Credit Union has pledged an endowment of $5,000 each year for five years. Of this amount, $1,000 will provide financial assistance to a current full-time student and the balance will be applied to build the endowment. After the five year pledge is completed, the fund will permanently support students.
“We know that our Wisconsin communities are strengthened when education is accessible to all. We’re proud to be a strong partner with Madison College,” said Jaimes Johnson, UWCU director of community and corporate relations.
