Charitable Donation Account

A Charitable Donation Account (CDA) is an easy way to give more—and strengthen your bottom line at the same time. With a CDA, you can invest in a variety of expanded investment options otherwise impermissible by the NCUA. With the new investment returns, you’ll donate a minimum of 51% of those earnings to the charity of your choice and retain up to 49% as income for your other credit union initiatives.
CDA investments have increased 58% in the past two years.1
