Summer of Sharing Campaign
Community Financial Credit Union has been enhancing the lives of our members and our communities for over 65 years. The word “community” is not only in our name, but it is the core of what we do. We know that Community Financial would not exist without our members and the communities in which they live.
Strong business can only grow from a strong community that benefits everyone, which is why helping nonprofits, educational, and community groups is a part of our culture. We believe these groups have a tremendous impact on the communities we serve and it’s both our responsibility and pleasure to support them. We are committed to the communities where we do business and have devoted both time and money to help them succeed. Partnerships with local school districts, The Salvation Army, United Way and American Cancer Society are just a few of the ways we are making a difference.
To help build stronger communities, we are reaching out to our neighbors and asking for your help. Think about it.

Achieve Charter Academy

This money would greatly help our school buy extra supplies for our different programs to help further our students education. We would be able to buy calculators for all of our math students, or extra resources for our specials programs.
Achieve Charter Academy

I've worked at Achieve for the last 8 years. I started as a kindergarten teacher and then when I had a family of my own, I began the English Language (EL) program at Achieve. It has grown in 4 years from just under 50 students to nearly 250! We have a great community of students and teachers from all different backgrounds, learning levels and learning styles! In just our school we have over 35 different languages spoken! Our EL program has a great lending library for students and three amazing full-time teachers that put their heart and soul into helping these children be successful! However, we could really use more technology for our department. There are so many great language learning applications and technology resources. If we received $1000 for the EL department, we would invest it into the purchase of new technologies for our growing EL department. Thanks!

Otsego County Child Welfare Alliance provides items to keep our youngest members of our community safe. They provide education to the parents on how to keep their babies safe.
If needed they provide pack n plays for the babies to sleep safely. Plug covers, drawer latches, CO2 monitors, sleep blankets, car seats, whatever it takes to keep our newest members safe. OCCWA is a small group with the biggest hearts when it comes to the babies and children of Otsego county. But they need help to continue their great work.
Liberty Middle School

If Liberty Middle School received the gift of sharing we could put it towards our PBIS program. A successful PBIS program (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) approach allows the school create an environment of respectability, responsibility, achievement and ownership among the students. This monetary reward could be used towards student reward incentives, school wide positive statement posters and activities throughout the year. The activities and incentives also Correlates to the School Improvement Plan by addressing discipline behaviors in relation to our PBIS plan.
Achieve Charter Academy 2nd Grade
Posted By: Tiffany Gartner (June 2, 2017)
At ACA, we strive everyday to provide our students with high quality education. I am hoping to provide more technology for our 2nd graders to use on a daily basis to engage and educate. Our struggling students need every intervention possible to help them grow. Our students who are exceling also deserve the opportunity to grow and learn new things that may not be included in our whole group curriculum. During small group time, each student has the opportunity to utilize things like technology, games and manipulatives to further along their skill set no matter what level they are at. These tools are crucial to access materials that we do not have in our own school and utilize the internet and educational apps. I am very thankful that organizations like yours are donating resources for our students' benefit. Thank you so very much!
