Stockton-based Financial Center Credit Union has launched its 2015 Guardian Angel campaign, an online voting contest that allows community members to choose San Joaquin County based not-for-profits to be rewarded for their work
The local not-for-profit with the most votes by December 22, will be awarded $10,000 by the Credit Union; the runner-up not-for-profit will be awarded $5,000. All local residents are invited to nominate their favorite not-for-profit and cast their vote in this online event. Nominations and votes can be submitted at fccuburt.org/angel.
Financial Center is hosting the contest to help foster a philanthropic spirit in the San Joaquin area, especially during the end of the year, when many charitable organizations have the greatest need but often see a deficit in donations.
“Our cooperative has had a long history of community involvement and giving, and we’re looking to inspire others in the community to do the same,” said Michael Duffy, Financial Center President/CEO. “Credit unions are based on the principle of people helping people, so it’s important to us that the cooperative helps out fellow community members who are in need.”
The contest opened November 20 and as of November 23 at noon, had already resulted in 15 unique entries and 950 votes.
