Credit unions are another great resources, because when you invest your money, you actually become a part-owner.

Here’s a resource to find a credit union near you: http://mapping.ncua.gov/

To be considered eligible for some credit unions’ membership, you’ll be asked to pay a small one-time fee, or make a donation to a charitable cause.

For example, Alliant Credit Union, a national credit union, http://www.alliantcreditunion.org, asks for a $10 donation for a foster care nonprofit if you aren’t already a member of one of their partner groups.

And if you’re worried about ATM fees, Alliant also rebates up to $20 a month for them.

So be bold, be brave.  Stop letting your money be used to destroy our planet.  Start investing in your community.
