2022 was the largest year for investments in nonprofits, members and the community.
Canopy Credit Union is thrilled to announce its 2022 financial gifts to the Eastern Washington community. Canopy invested over $200,000 into local nonprofits, community organizations and its members over the course of the year.
“This is by far the largest sum of money we have given back to the community in a year,” Canopy President/CEO Charlotte Nemec said. “It's exciting to watch Canopy continue to grow so we can do even more to support local organizations and be able to thank our amazing members through rewards. For a credit union our size, these numbers are impressive.”
The breakdown on Canopy's monetary gifts to the community include:
- Sponsorship donations to nonprofits and community organizations- $75,767
- Kasasa Checking Account Rewards to members- $125,108
- Kasasa ATM Refunds to members- $30,562
- Zogo Gift Card Rewards to members who use the financial literacy app- $3,225
In 2022, Canopy partnered with over 25 nonprofits and community organizations, providing financial support as well as on-site workshops. Additionally, the credit union's staff clocked in a total of 135 volunteer hours over the course of the year, which Canopy compensated as part of its paid volunteer time program. Those dollars distributed in cash back rewards and ATM refunds gave members additional support on their journey to financial wellness.
As one member recently wrote in a review, “They are community focused. They care about people by listening, meeting needs and going above and beyond to show you you’re loved and respected. I’m glad this is my money management team.”
