Meet Our Board: Breanne Stafford

Meet Breanne Stafford, Community Futures Huron volunteer board member.

Breanne is the Branch Manager at Libro Credit Union in Wingham. Joining Libro in 2014 and with over 20 years of experience in the financial services industry, Breanne has been working to grow prosperity here and the surrounding area.

Her excitement to make positive impact where she lives and works is built on a solid foundation in account management, financing solutions, leading a talented and dedicated staff team, and her passion for supporting local businesses.

As a Director at Community Futures Huron, my Libro hat is always on as I look for opportunities to address the most challenging issues facing our small town and rural communities. I have the unique opportunity to compliment what we’re doing at Community Futures Huron by encouraging entrepreneurs and businesses to also apply to Libro’s annual grants program. If I can help businesses get more funding to further strengthen the rural communities they’re supporting, that’s a win-win.

Libro invests 100% of profits back into the people, businesses and communities they serve. One of the ways they do this is by supporting organizations that are making a positive local impact helping address some of the most challenging issues in southwestern Ontario: Employment, Financial Resilience, Local Food Accessibility and Housing. All organizations with programs and projects aligned with these pillars are encouraged to apply at libro.ca. Applications are accepted every year in May.

Breanne is excited about Libro’s recent partnership with Gateway Centre of Excellence that aims to reduce food insecurity and build a vibrant local food economy in Huron County – a key focus area for Libro and one of the biggest challenges facing the region.

Breanne is proud that both Community Futures Huron and Libro Credit Union stepped up to support emergency relief to individuals, businesses hard hit by the pandemic. Libro gave $320,000 to eight United Ways across southwestern Ontario, $60,000 of which was directed to United Way Perth Huron, and the local Wingham branch supported our local Salvation Army Kettle Fund and Habitat for Humanity.

Breanne loves helping people reach their fullest potential. Whether through financial coaching, forging partnerships, or volunteering in the community, we are grateful to have her support.
