With a multitude of employee propelled fundraisers, countless volunteer hours and unwavering support throughout the New Hampshire community it is easy to see that the New Hampshire Credit Union League understands that a wish can teach a sick child that anything is possible….even the future.
Interested in learning more about the New Hampshire Credit Union League, and how they have made it their responsibility to give back to the communities they serve? Read on…
Each credit union is an integral part of the community it serves, whether that community is made up of cities and towns, a workplace or a community formed by people who share an interest of some kind. Unlike for-profit financial institutions, credit unions are cooperatives that exist solely for the purpose of providing for the financial needs of their members. Therefore, it is quite easy to understand how naturally Social Responsibility comes to credit unions.
The League actively supports and encourages credit unions in their community outreach efforts. In support of those efforts, the League maintains a committee on Social Responsibility. The purpose of that committee is to develop a unified plan of social responsibility for the League through recommendations to the League’s Board of Directors. That plan features programs and events that focus statewide efforts on designated charitable and community activities and that enhance the positive image of credit unions as well as the public’s overall awareness of them.
