Elan Donates $75,000 to Celebrate Credit Union Day

October 20, 2022

(Minneapolis, MN) - To celebrate the commitment of credit unions to their members and communities, Elan selected five of its credit union partners to designate a charity in their community to receive a $15,000 donation on the credit union's behalf.

Elan Credit Card General Manager, John Owens, shared, "The relationships between Elan and our credit union partners goes far beyond our business partnership. We know the impact credit unions are making in their neighborhoods - and we want to celebrate that and support it. That's why we launched our charitable giving program and we're so proud to continue the program with these gifts on Credit Union Day."

The five selected nonprofits share the mission of "people helping people" and are all working to support their communities with the resources and care needed to emphasize health. Focus areas include supporting children in foster care or who are critically ill, providing emergency shelter for teens, free eye exams, and empowering families of color to positively connect with their community. The Elan credit union partners and selected beneficiaries for Credit Union Day 2022 include: - Connex Credit Union (Urban Community Alliance) - Copper State Credit Union (Arizona Helping Hands) - Millbury Federal Credit Union (Millbury Lions Club) - St. Mary's Credit Union (Make-A-Wish® Massachusetts and Rhode Island) - Texoma Community Credit Union (Children's Aid Society of West Texas, Inc.) In 2023, Elan plans to organize an in-person volunteer event to celebrate this initiative. This will provide the opportunity for Elan team members to work alongside our credit union partners and further our charitable commitment.
