What Is the REAL Deal?

2012 REAL Deal Outreach Report The REAL Deal Outreach Campaign is a framework of four areas where credit unions help people to have the knowledge to make good financial decisions and provide them with tangible programs that really help! The four areas of focus are REAL Sources, REAL Programs, REAL Community Help, and REAL Partnerships. By participating in at least three of the four areas of focus, credit unions are more than credit unions, they are REAL Deal Credit Unions!
