Alaska USA contributes more than $60,000 to community nonprofits

Alaska USA Federal Credit Union has donated $60,250 to support nonprofit organizations as part of its annual grant program. This year 73 nonprofits in the communities Alaska USA serves were granted funds.

“Alaska USA’s community support grant program was established in 1995 to make contributions to charitable or service organizations in support of the credit union’s philosophy of people helping people,” said President Bill Eckhardt in a press release. “As a responsible member of the communities we serve, the grant program allows us to support nonprofits that need funding.”

To be eligible for a grant from Alaska USA, nonprofits must provide services directly to individuals, be within Alaska USA’s field of membership, and be tax exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code for at least three years.
