“We are proud to support MCUCF,” said Michelle Rosner, Chief Lending Officer for 1st Financial Federal Credit Union. “Our donation will help MCUCF continue to offer financial education programs to high school students, provide scholarships to smaller credit unions and offer support for credit union community development programs throughout the state of Missouri.”
