When Big Brothers and Big Sisters entered the month of June, it had 58 children waiting for a match. With referrals coming in daily and funding limited, the odds of finding the children a mentor appeared as a longshot.
But June waned and last week, Big Brothers and Big Sisters emerged as one of three local nonprofits to split $60,000 awarded by the Missoula Federal Credit Union https://missoulafcu.org The financial institution was celebrating its 60th anniversary and was looking to make a difference in the community.

Missoulian Community Cornerstones 2016: Missoula Federal Credit Union
Today, the Missoulian visits with Missoula Federal Credit Union, one of our community's cornerstone businesses.
Here's what we learned in a Q&A with Missoula Federal Credit Union's present-day owners.
Missoula Federal Credit Union asked its members to decide which non-profits should benefit from the 60th Anniversary gift back to the Community. I have always appreciated the community focus of MFCU; that's what happens when people are members, not just customers.
Happy Birthday, Missoula Federal Credit Union! Congratulations to all the volunteers and staff--past and present--who make it Missoula's favorite financial institution.
