Mission FCU helps schools bridge funds gap
SAN DIEGO (9/4/09)--Mission FCU is attempting to drum up extra financial support for local schools hit by budget cutbacks through its “Mission 4 R Schools” initiative. For every new account opened at the $2 billion asset, San Diego-based credit union through Dec. 31, Mission FCU will deposit $25 in the new account and make a matching $25 donation to a school chosen by the new member (Reuters Sept. 1). The matching funds can be used by local elementary, middle and high schools, and also colleges and universities, the credit union said. “At Mission Federal, we are acutely aware of the critical need for additional funding sources for our local schools, so we developed this groundbreaking fundraising opportunity to show our support during these extreme budget times,” said Tricia Link, Mission Federal vice president of communications and community relations, in a press release. “The ‘Mission 4 R Schools’ matching donation funds will be provided to schools by Mission Fed without any strings attached,” she added. “Funds can be used for everything from classroom computers to museum field trips, instruments for the band to science equipment and classroom supplies.”
