Humanitarian Highlight 11.25.21
This week’s #HumanitarianHighlight is on credit unions giving thanks to the community. We’re all giving thanks this Thanksgiving, but these credit unions are truly demonstrating how much they appreciate their members. So, as we all relax and have plenty of food, let’s recognize a few credit unions making this holiday truly special.
OnPoint Community Credit Union recently donated $226,750 to the Nature Conservancy in Oregon. The donation was made in support of the nonprofit’s goal to address climate change and was funded largely through an initiative for the credit union to donate up to $250 for every Green Auto Discount loan that was approved. More than 1,400 loans were responsible for the total donation.
Greenville Federal Credit Union granted a total of $50,000 to five nonprofits in the Greenville area of South Carolina. Each nonprofit received $10,000 as part of the Thanks and Giving Grants program, which started back in 2018 during the credit union’s 50th year anniversary. Each grant recipient will benefit and support education, improve child welfare, or otherwise improve the local community.
Truliant Federal Credit Union launched the Truliant Foundation with a $25,000 donation to the Mathematics and Science Education Network at Winston-Salem State University. The foundation’s goal will be to support the community with targeted donations toward community organizations.
Dannemora Federal Credit Union donated $15,750 to the Clinton Community College Foundation. The donation aims to help fund scholarship opportunities for high school students in the area, with the largest being the College Advancement Program.
Sound Credit Union partnered with its members and Northwest Motorsport to make a combined contribution of $12,000 to Food Lifeline, a nonprofit that provides food for families and individuals in need. The donation is equivalent to approximately 60,000 meals and is expected to be distributed during the holiday season.
Copper State Credit Union donated $5,000 to the Students Inspiring Students scholarship fund. The donation was given at the first annual Students Inspiring Students Golf Tournament at the GCU Golf Course, and further money will be raised by members using their Lopes Checking debit card.
Oak Tree Business Systems respects the dedication of these credit unions for continuing to give to the community they serve. Take these examples to heart as you enjoy the holidays!
