A corporate donor advised fund allows a company to establish a fund in their name, make charitable gifts, and remain involved by recommending grants to charitable agencies or projects. Each year, CUNA Mutual Group employees make grant recommendations to the foundation board of directors regarding the charitable agencies or projects they wish to support. With each grant awarded, CUNA Mutual Group furthers their corporate philanthropy and community involvement.
The Barton County Quality of Life Endowment Fund was established in 2009 through the Golden Belt Community Foundation when CUNA Mutual Group acquired CPI Qualified Plan Consultants, Inc. (CPI) and made a generous donation establishing the corporate grant making fund. Since then the fund has grown and CPI employees have begun reviewing projects that will benefit Barton County. Last year they announced the rebranding and newly targeted focus for CPI, which included a new name: CPI is now known as CUNA Mutual Group.
