Last year was a big year for Credit Union 1. Our employees volunteered hundreds of hours of their time toward local Alaskan organizations and causes. We got out in our communities and provided hands on assistance to help hungry Alaskans, Alaskan youth, homeless Alaskans and more!
On top of the time that was donated, our credit union and generous members donated thousands of dollars in charitable funds. At each CU1 member appreciation event, we hosted a silent auction (and MATCHED the funds raised) to help an important organization in each one of our branch communities. We’re serious about inspiring positive change in our members’ lives, and we do so in lots of ways!
The credit union’s special One for All Alaska Fund also saw great success during 2016 in raising funds for local causes that are important to Alaskans. In total, the fund raised $96,923.70 for communities across Alaska! The One for All Alaska Fund partners that benefited from these funds were:
In 2017, Credit Union 1 is resolved to do even more good for Alaska. We are a uniquely community-minded organization, and we hope our philanthropic efforts will make a positive impact on your life!
