Earlier in the week, we examined the differences between banks and credit unions and learned about credit unions’ historical roots in cooperation and the mutual benefit of members. Today, as credit unions globally celebrate International Credit Union Day, we’ll explore how the Alliant Credit Union Foundation exemplifies this year’s event theme of “Local Service, Global Good.”
“Since the Alliant Credit Union Foundation began five short years ago, it has given out over $1 million to enhance economic empowerment and self-sufficiency in places where Alliant Credit Union members and employees live and work,” said Foundation President and Alliant Credit Union Chief Investment Officer Wayne Rosenwinkel.
The Foundation, a 501c3 not-for-profit charitable organization, donated over $200,000 to various national and local charities in amounts ranging from $500 to $30,000 in the recently completed 2014 fiscal year. The good works done by the Foundation – and by Alliant’s Civic Affairs committee and Alliant employees who volunteer their time nationwide – are the embodiment of the credit union ethos of serving the local community and working for the greater good.
“Alliant Credit Union Foundation is proud of its continuing support of schools, charities and other organizations that work to improve the quality of life in the communities of our members and employees,” said Alliant Credit Union CEO and Foundation Chair David Mooney.
