May 4, 2016 ­­—Campus USA has given the College of Central Florida Foundation $50,000 to establish an endowed scholarship for students in CF’s Bachelor of Applied Science in Business and Organizational Management program. 

Campus USA CEO Jerry Benton presented the check Monday, April 18, to CF President Jim Henningsen and CF Foundation Board Chair Fred Roberts Jr.

“With double-digit enrollment growth in our bachelor’s programs, this scholarship will permanently help students earn a bachelor’s degree here at CF,” said Henningsen.   

Campus USA Credit Union, chartered in 1935 as Gainesville Florida Campus Federal Credit Union, was the first credit union on a U.S. college campus. Today Campus USA Credit Union serves over 89,000 members in Alachua, Clay, Columbia, Gadsden, Jefferson, Lake, Leon, Madison, Marion, Sumter, Suwannee and Wakulla counties.

Part of the vision for Campus USA is to empower its employees to make a positive difference in the financial lives of their members and in the communities they serve.  CAMPUS USA Credit Union founded the CAMPUS USA Foundation in 2015 with the mission to make a positive impact on the communities they serve. One of their initiatives is to make an impact in Education and Financial literacy.

“This gift of education will empower students at CF to become successful members of our communities,” said Chris Knife, CF Foundation executive director. “Many students would not be able to fulfill their dream of receiving a degree in higher education without the generosity of donors like Campus USA.”
