"Thumbs Up for Charity" Starts March 11!

Authored By: Community Financial Credit Union on 3/5/2019
We often give a “thumbs up” to things we like such as Facebook statuses and Netflix shows. During the month of March, Community Financial is making it easy for you to give a “thumbs up” to your favorite charity with our 6th annual “Thumbs Up for Charity!” program! So how can you get involved?

Starting Monday, March 11th, you can nominate a local organization that's doing great work in your community for a chance to receive a donation up to $10,000! Nominations will be accepted at cfcu.org/thumbsup until Friday, March 29th.

Once all the nominations have been received, 5 finalists will be chosen and voting will begin on April 8th. The community will be able to vote for the 5 finalists until April 19th, so don’t miss this chance to give recognition to the group you think deserves it most! Winners will be announced on cfcu.org by April 24th.

Community Financial will be donating $25,000 through this exciting program:
  • The charity that receives the most online votes will receive the grand prize of $10,000
  • Second and third place winners will each receive $5,000
  • Fourth and fifth place will each receive $2,500.

“The nonprofit groups in our communities work hard and we are proud to support them throughout the year,” said Community Financial's Manager/Community Relations Natalie McLaughlin. “We want to provide the residents of our communities a chance to tell us which groups they think deserve recognition, and ‘Thumbs Up for Charity!’ gives them that opportunity.”

If you’d like to nominate a charity, please make sure that it is a registered 501(c)(3) organization, recognized community support organization, or associated with an accredited educational institution serving the communities within Community Financial's field of membership.
