The Uplifting Others Fund

Request assistance through the #CU1LUV Community Fund

This special fund serves as a way for Alaskans to receive direct assistance from our credit union through a nonprofit organization.

Through the unique Uplifting Others Fund, local nonprofits can apply for assistance on behalf of a client they are serving whose food, shelter or health is at risk. Examples could include a simple reason such as the need to buy groceries, but we also support situations that inspire a "ripple effect" such as fixing a client's car so they can get to work and earn money to pay their rent/mortgage.


  • Requests must be made by a nonprofit 501(c)(3).
  • The receiving individual must be an Alaskan resident. Requests will be considered for any Alaskan resident, but priority will be given to residents that live in the CU1 branch communities of Anchorage, Eagle River, Fairbanks, Kodiak, Soldotna, Ketchikan, and Nome.
  • Funding will be mailed or hand-delivered to the nonprofit to disperse to the individual. Depending upon urgency, funds may be in the form of a gift card that would be delivered to the nonprofit representative’s office.
  • Limited funds are available. Individuals, via their nonprofit, will only be funded once per calendar year.

Ways You Can Help

The Uplifting Others Fund is supported by funds that Credit Union 1 donates on behalf of members who finance loans with us. For every consumer loan, we’ll donate $1 to this fund. For every real estate loan, we’ll donate $10. Now, when you finance a CU1 loan toward your own life goals – or refinance an existing loan to Credit Union 1 – you’re making a much larger impact on the lives of those around you. That’s #CU1LUV at work, and we’re grateful for your support!

NCUA Insured

Your savings are federally insured to at least $250,000 by the National Credit Union Administration and backed by the full faith and credit of the United States Government.
