Sunmark Foundation's 2023 Year in Review

It was a busy year for the Sunmark Charitable Community Foundation and we have so much to be grateful for. From completing the third Summer of Kindness, celebrating our fifth annual ICU Awards, to raising over $80,000 at our charity golf tournament, there was never a dull moment for the Kindness Crew! Here are just a handful of our special moments from 2023:

Over 30 Sunmark volunteers participated in 5.18 Day, the largest day of community impact in the Capital Region. Locations included the Boys & Girls Club of the Capital Area in Albany, and Schenectady Community Ministries’ (SICM) community garden at the Historic Vale Cemetery in Schenectady.

Our "Office Games" event raised over $1,500 for the Special Olympics of New York. Staff donated for the chance to compete against each other in various games including golf, indoor bowling, "equestrian" and more! For an additional donation, staff also had the opportunity to show their support for Special Olympics by wearing a "Sunmark Supports Special Olympics" t-shirt.

We celebrated our 5th Annual ICU Day Awards with a reception at Ellms' Farm in Ballston Spa. Donating $20,000 to area non-profits, the Foundation continued their committment to recognizing organizations and people that help foster the credit union philosophy of people helping people. Learn more about the 2023 ICU Day recipients here.
