    Anchorage, AK – The Global Credit Union Foundation donated $72,500 to community nonprofits in Alaska and Arizona.

    “Organizations like these are vital to improving the lives of people in our communities,” said Noël Gabler, Executive Director, Global Credit Union Foundation. “We consider ourselves very lucky to be able to help support their missions and look forward to the work they do in the future.”

    Recipients of funds include:

    $5,000 to Kid in the Corner – Kid in the Corner is a nonprofit organization in Arizona dedicated to promoting mental health awareness and supporting those struggling with mental illness—providing access to resources, promoting kindness, and fostering a supportive community.

    $7,500 to Alaska Legal Services Corporation (ALSC) – ALSC offers free civil legal services to low income and disadvantaged people, including veterans, to protect their safety, their health, and promote family stability—bridging the statewide gap between those who need civil legal help and those who are able to get it.
