Humanitarian Highlight 12.30.21
This week's #HumanitarianHighlight is on credit unions ending the year with charity. The end of the year is a time for introspection, growth, and an appreciation for how far you've come and what you'd like to do. Celebrate a year lived and do what you can to make yourself happy! Here are a few credit unions inspiring us to enjoy the end of the year.
During the Rise for Valleywise radio giving event on LIVE 101.5, MariSol Federal credit union gave $2,500 to the Valleywise Health Foundation. This nonprofit supports an Arizona area health education system named Valleywise Health. The credit union also committed to matching up to $1,000 more donations given during the live show.
State Employees' Credit Union announced a $1.5 million grant to Aces for Autism toward the construction of a new facility in eastern North Carolina. The new facility will be able to complete a large portion of its first phase of construction thanks to the large donation by the SECU Foundation.
Canvas Credit Union, through its foundation, gave $10,000 to the Purdue School District toward supporting education. The charitable donation was made to support literacy and career readiness and is part of an ongoing commitment by the credit union to support area education.
During the 21st Annual Tree Festival and Auction, Travis Credit Union showed its support for the Travis AFB Fisher House by donating $10,000 toward the cause. The nonprofit offers temporary free lodging for active military and veteran families whose significant other is staying in the hospital.
First Basin Credit Union raised a combined total of $15,000 for the United Way of Odessa, with a final $2,000 donation to cap off the year. The donation was made as part of a goal to raise $10,000 over the course of a year, with the Chief Operating Officer Brad Stilwell offering to shave his beard if the goal was met. United Way Odessa is a nonprofit that aims to promote community health, education, and self-sufficiency.
A+ Federal Credit Union sponsored the Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce signature gala with a $3,000 donation. The event brings together Latino business owners, community leaders, elected officials, and other prominent members of the Latino community.
Oak Tree Business Systems hopes the new year treats everyone well, and we're happy to see credit unions pursuing that goal by ending the year with charity.
