Wine Me Up! Supports Training Grants


WMU Stain Enhanced

What is “Wine Me Up!”?

Wine Me Up! is a new, fun way to support training grants for credit union professionals and volunteers.

The Foundation has provided over $100,000 in training support to MD & DC-based Credit Unions.

This event, often referred to as a “wine pull” works like this:

  • Friends of the Foundation like you are invited to donate wine to Wine Me Up!
  • Attendees at the MD|DC Credit Union Association Annual Meeting & Convention (June 11 to 13, 2017 in Ocean City, MD) will be able to purchase $20 wine tickets at the Foundation’s exhibit booth.
  • Each ticket purchased guarantees the ticket holder a bottle of wine that they “pull” from the selection available at the Foundation’s exhibit booth.  Think of it as a grab bag.  For adults.
  • All of the bottles are wrapped so no one knows exactly what bottle they will receive.  All donated wine ranges in value from $20 to $200+.
  • Each bottle is labeled with the donor’s name.  Everyone is a winner!

What types of items can be donated?

Any bottle of wine is acceptable, but each bottle needs to be valued at $20 or more.  You can also make a cash donation that will be used to purchase wine for the event.  Donations are tax deductible.

How will the proceeds be used?
Your contribution helps fund the Credit Union Foundation MD|DC’s Training Grant Program that provides valuable assistance to local credit union professionals and volunteers.  The Foundation has awarded $100,000+ in training grants to help emerging credit unions meet the expense of keeping their staff and volunteers well trained.

Contributions are tax deductible.
