The Coalition’s mission is to engage, or produce, the research data, capital funding, community partnerships, & coordinated advocacy needed to propose and commence operation of a national LGBTQ Credit Union by 2020.
The Coalition’s programs are focused in four key areas:
LGBTQ-affirming Finance & Insurance Services
The Coalition is supporting the creation of necessary LGBTQ competent and inclusive services which are needed to close the Wealth Gap between LGBTQ households and communities and mainstream peers so that LGBTQ people can live with fully fair access and equal opportunity in today’s economy.
Launching an LGBTQ-FCU by 2023
The Coalition’s vision is to found the first nationwide LGBTQ Federal Credit Union (FCU) by 2023 offering fair & equal access to financial services, planning, and products specialized for the unique financial needs and concerns of LGBTQ consumers, and which can grow and sustain that businesses and organizations serving LGBTQ communities.
Grants & Giving for Community Impact
The Coalition is committed to giving back to the LGBTQ community through grants, scholarships, and gifts which emphasize creative and impact-oriented solutions for the financial and economic challenges which LGBTQ households, businesses, and communities face.
