CUNA staff recognized for charitable giving
WASHINGTON (5/17/11)--America’s Charities, a large coalition of American charitable organizations, granted the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and its National Credit Union Foundation (NCUF) an award for “the highest growth in contributions” from the prior year. With a 51% increase of pledge dollars in the Fall 2010 charity drive, CUNA employees had broken their own record of charitable giving through the campaign. According to Steve Delfin, America’s Charities President/ CEO and former NCUF executive director, "CUNA employees showed what happens when a motivated, dedicated, mission-oriented workforce is united with a chance to engage in workplace giving.” “The increase in donations, and level of giving, were extraordinary--particularly in today's continued unstable economy," Delfin said. CUNA President/CEO Bill Cheney added, “CUNA employees have always viewed the America’s Charities campaign as a priority and, as someone who, obviously, works daily with the CUNA staff, it is no surprise to me that CUNA folks dug in even deeper when the need was greater.” Cheney offered sincere thanks to America’s Charities for recognizing the generosity of the CUNA staff. For its efforts, CUNA received the Growing Giving Award, which is presented each year to the organization that has the largest increase in pledge dollars, measured by percentage, on May 10. 2010 was the ninth year of CUNA’s involvement with the America’s Charities campaign. America’s Charities represents over 100 national and local charities in employee workplace giving campaigns throughout the country. In 2010, America’s Charities raised more than $37 million for those members, and for thousands of other charities to which employees donated through payroll giving.
