Make an Impact on Giving Tuesday by Donating to the Northwest Credit Union Foundation
Posted by Ben Shuey on November 27, 2018
Today is Giving Tuesday, the global day of giving. Celebrated on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday is a counterpoint to Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
After a weekend of consumer spending, Giving Tuesday provides a moment to pause, be grateful, support causes you care about, join together with friends and colleagues, and share in the credit union People Helping People philosophy.
Northwest Credit Union Foundation donors have made a significant impact in the financial wellbeing of people across our region. With your support, the Foundation has awarded more than $130,000 in professional development scholarships to grow credit union leaders, provided more than $10,000 in disaster relief funds, helped college students leverage more than $40,000 in educational funds through MESA, and awarded $120,000 in grants to credit unions creating solutions to workforce housing hurdles in their communities. Your contributions are making a difference.
To make an even greater impact, the Foundation is asking our credit union family to consider making a $25 tax-deductible donation to the Northwest Credit Union Foundation on Giving Tuesday. Charitable giving gets to the heart of the People Helping People credit union philosophy. When you give to the Foundation, you build stronger communities and become the catalyst for growing the Credit Union Movement.
The cooperative spirit of Northwest credit unions is an inspiration, and your Foundation thanks you for your continued support, and for helping us improve the financial lives of people and communities across our region.
