The foundation was established to help extend the credit union philosophy of 'people helping
people' and enhance Expedition CU's support and focus on the education community. The
Expedition Foundation is a separate entity from Expedition Credit Union. However, Expedition CU is
the primary funder and donates operational resources to run the foundation. Expedition Foundation
is a 501(c)(3) organization and donations received are tax-deductible.
