MyDonate - Fundraising page for Development Educator Course Bursaries


The ICULD&E Foundation is one of just two charitable organisations providing bursaries for individuals to attend Development Educator (DE) courses outside their homelands, the other is the Australian Mutuals Foundation, one of its strategic partners.

For those who don't know, DE courses provide a total immersion in credit union history, philosophy, corporate governance and operational activity over an intense 5 or 6 day period, developing new and latent skills in all who attend; inspiring them to become more imbued with practical cooperation, aware of the value of their place in social economy and impact on society.  

Development Educators are the "strivers" and "doers" of the credit union movement, the natural leaders who can identify societal needs and deliver solutions.  

As a result of the growing demand for bursaries from around the world, funds are diminishing and, sadly, a ceiling has had to be set on the number granted as well as amounts given in individual cases.  So, in addition to its annual fundraising event, the "Credit Union Oscars", the ICULD&E Foundation is now registered with British Telecom's "MyDonate" online fundraising site (chosen because "MyDonate" is a free not-for-profit service, part of BT’s commitment to raise £1 billion for good causes by 2020.)  

The ICULDEF is about “credit union leaders of today building those of tomorrow” – please click on the "MyDonate" button to donate what ever you can to help us in spreading the unique credit union difference and bringing its benefits to all.
