CoVantage Credit Union has recently announced the establishment of CoVantage Cares Foundation. Its mission is to support local organizations that work to enhance the quality of life and provide financial assistance to individuals living in communities served by CoVantage Credit Union. While the Foundation is in its early stages, it has already provided a number of grants, including a total of $3,400 to nine food pantries in communities where the credit union has branches.
“We believe the credit union has an obligation to give back to our members and communities by sharing some of the financial success our organization achieves,” said Brian Prunty, CoVantage Credit Union CEO. “Financial giving is one of the ways we fulfill our mission. As our credit union has grown, we decided it was time for us to formalize how we give. As a result, the credit union’s board approved the establishment of CoVantage Cares Foundation, Inc.”
In 2015, CoVantage donated just over $200,000 benefiting 640 groups ranging from 4-H, little league and scouts, to victim abuse shelters, food pantries, and humane societies.
