Sunmark employees donate $14,000 to local organizations through “Make your mark for charity” program
More than 180 Sunmark Credit Union employees contributed a combined $14,000 to local charities in 2022 through the credit union’s employee donation program, “Make Your Mark for Charity.” This annual program was a component of Sunmark’s 85th anniversary “Make Your Mark” campaign – which donated a total of more than $85,000 to local charities and non-profits in 2022, recognizing the credit union’s 85 years of serving its members and communities.
Organizations were selected based upon the results of a staff-wide survey circulated at the beginning of 2022 in which ten non-profits were chosen (one designated per month). The remaining two months were allocated to a holiday giving program and the National Credit Unions 4 Kids organization.
This voluntary donation program allows employees who wish to participate the option of a standard deduction of $2.50, or platinum deduction of $5.00 on a bi-weekly basis. The Sunmark Charitable Community Foundation was responsible for distributing the funds to the selected charities:
Funds received through the program are either given as a monetary donation or used to purchase supplies or other “wish list” items requested from the organization. Additionally, the Sunmark Charitable Community Foundation supports the recipients through other events that correlate with the charity for that month.
