FORUM Credit Union has updated its long-running community giveback program and will launch the updated initiative next month, partnering with locally owned businesses in the Indianapolis area.

The updated giveback program, named Fridays with FORUM, is designed to encourage members of the community to support local businesses, and in return, FORUM will reward these members who make purchases at the selected business. Each month, FORUM selects a local business to spotlight and will promote the program on a specified Friday of each month. FORUM will then make $10 deposits to the first 30 members who visit the local business as a “thank you” for supporting the local community. This program temporarily replaces the previous give-back program in which FORUM representatives surprised small business patrons by paying for their in-store purchases.

“We are proud to continue our support for small businesses and are happy to give back to our members who support them,” said Andy Mattingly, Chief Operating Officer at FORUM Credit Union.
