Patronage Reward Giving Program

Are you a member of North Shore Federal Credit Union? If so, then you have an opportunity to help Birch Grove Community School.

Each year, North Shore Federal Credit Union celebrates its success by returning earnings to its members in the form of a Patronage Reward. The Patronage Reward is divided equally between borrowers and savers and is prorated based on the amount of interest paid on loans or interest earned on savings for each member. The more you save or borrow with NSFCU, the larger your reward.

North Shore Federal Credit Union credits Patronage Rewards to its members on December 31 of each calendar year to each member’s special Patronage Reward account. Members are free to withdraw the funds or leave them in the account to earn a high rate of interest, which is currently 10% annual percentage rate.

North Shore Federal has created the Patronage Reward Giving Program, which allows its members to donate any balance currently held in their Patronage Rewards account to any designated Community Advantage non-profit organization, such as Birch Grove Community School. This program will help us bring in substantial donation dollars to establish an endowment and/or cover costs of the valuable services and programs our organization provides to our community.

Consider paying it forward! Donate your Patronage Reward to Birch Grove Community School. Call or stop by your local North Shore Federal Credit Union office and request your donation transfer today.
