ORONO, Maine (May 6, 2018) – University Credit Union (UCU), Maine’s only full-service financial institution chartered to serve University of Maine System students, employees, alumni and their families, now offers an exclusive University of Southern Maine Platinum Rewards VISA credit card that supports the USM foundation.
For the University of Southern Maine community, the rewards card is an opportunity to give back to their alma mater and a chance to show off their school spirit everywhere they shop. The only one of its kind, the USM Platinum Rewards VISA credit card program financially supports the USM Foundation directly. Not only does every issuance of the card contribute to the University of Southern Maine Foundation, but every use of the card benefits the university as well.
“The USM Foundation is thrilled to partner with UCU on this great product that lets our friends and over 52,000 alums show their Husky pride,” said Corey Hascall, Director of Alumni Engagement and Annual Giving at the University of Southern Maine. “It’s a win-win: cardholders get top-of-the-line benefits and the Foundation earns revenue that directly supports USM’s students and programs.”
UCU’s President and CEO, Matthew Walsh added: “We realize that folks have choices when it comes to financial services, and we hope that seeing how this card benefits the communities that we serve, in this case the University of Southern Maine, they will enjoy it even more so.”
