Last year, Members 1st Credit Union raised $3,000 for Make-A-Wish in the foundation’s annual fundraising radiothon. “We were thrilled—but not surprised—to see the generous participation of our members and staff in giving to the Make-A-Wish Foundation,” said Teri Vanderpol, CEO and President of Members 1st.
The donations from credit union staff and members exceeded Members 1st’s goal by $1,000 and was the highest donation amount ever in its past six years of giving to Make-A-Wish. This year our goal is beat last year and continue to make a difference in the lives of local wish kids and their families.
Members 1st staff participate with general donations or by purchasing “Make-A-Wish Mondays,” where for a minimum donation, they can “buy” extra casual-dress days. The credit union matches up to $150 in donations from staff members.
Credit union members who make $1 and $5 donations are given paper stars of different sizes to sign that are hung in their branch office. Members making a $20 minimum donation received a magnetic star they can keep.
Fundraising will begin February 15, a month before the radiothon in March, with branches challenged to raise $500 each. Be sure to stop into any of our four branches to participate by buying a star or by donating online through this page.
All donations benefit Make-A-Wish® Northeastern & Central California and Northern Nevada.
Thank you for your support!
