    “Thanks to the generosity of our members, the foundation is able to give back to the community by supporting some incredibly impactful organizations,” said Noël Gabler, executive director, Global Credit Union Foundation. “By developing long-lasting partnerships like these, we’re able to help more people than we otherwise would.”

    Recipients of funds include:

    $12,400 to Girl Scouts of Alaska – Girl Scouts create the world they want to live in and strive to make it better every single day. They explore their strengths, take on new challenges, and can always be themselves, regardless of background or ability.  Supported by adult volunteers and mentors, as well as millions of alums around the globe, Girl Scouts lead the way as they discover who they are and how they can make the future a brighter place.

    $5,000 to NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) – NAMI started as a small group of families gathered around a kitchen table in 1979 and has blossomed into the nation’s leading voice on mental health.

    $5,000 to Educare Arizona – As part of a national network of Educare schools, Educare Arizona dramatically changes the life trajectories of thousands of children growing up in families facing the greatest obstacles to success.
