MONTPELIER, VT—VSECU today announced a commitment to foster and grow Vermont’s cooperative economy through strategic equity investments in local cooperative organizations.

VSECU will make these strategic investments through Co-op Capital, a new initiative that marks the latest project under the credit union’s vision to bring people together to empower possibilities for greater financial, environmental, and social prosperity. The primary goal of Co-op Capital is to drive significant growth within Vermont’s cooperative economy and positively impact VSECU’s local communities. Accordingly, in addition to weighing the financial viability of its cooperative partners, VSECU will also consider the social impact of the co-ops it chooses to invest in through this program.
