Former NWCUA Exec to Lead NCUF Fundraising Initiatives, Biz Kid$ Outreach

Danielle Brown, a former vice president of member relations for the Northwest Credit Union Association, has been named director of development and donor relations for the National Credit Union Foundation in Madison, Wis.

Brown, who also served as executive director of the Oregon Credit Union Foundation, will be responsible for development, fundraising and donor relations for the NCUF. She also will be the national organization’s liaison to the State Credit Union Foundation Network, and will continue to be the national coordinator of Biz Kid$, a role for which she has contracted with NCUF for the past few years.

“Danielle brings a wealth of experience and passion to the foundation and we couldn’t be happier to work with her in this new role,” says Gigi Hyland, NCUF’s executive director.

Brown has served on the executive committees of the National Credit Union Foundation Board of Directors and the State Credit Union Foundation Network. Before the merger of the Oregon and Washington leagues, Brown was senior vice president of operations for the Credit Union Association of Oregon.

While in the Northwest, Brown taught credit union courses at Mt. Hood Community College and served on the boards of the Oregon Jump$tart Coalition, Credit Union Women’s Association and Financial Women International. Before joining the Association, she was a compliance officer at Unitus Community Credit Union.

“I am excited about this opportunity and look forward to reaching out to supporters who will help build upon NCUF’s mission to help credit unions improve people’s financial lives,” Brown says.
