Friends of the Foundation Help Students Bridge the College Funding Gap

As a Friend of the Foundation, your generous contribution to NWCUF has had a huge impact on low-income students through the Matched Education Savings Account (MESA) program. In partnership with credit unions, we are helping students avoid student debt while building a habit to save.

Through MESA, when a student saves $500 for college expenses, the amount he or she saves is matched 3:1. This means you can help low-income students turn $500 into $2,000 for books or tuition.

The following video highlights the story of two students — Amber and Cynthia — who have been impacted by your generosity.
