ROANOKE, VA (December 1, 2021) — Member One Federal Credit Union joined in GivingTuesday by presenting monetary donations to four worthwhile non-profit organizations located across Southwest and Central Virginia. GivingTuesday, November 30th, the day where people come together in a global movement to show kindness and generosity in all its forms by giving their voice, time, money, goods, and advocacy to support communities and causes.
All Member One plusONE Visa® credit cardholders earn cash back on their purchases, and Member One also donates a portion of their purchases to non-profits in Southwest and Central Virginia. “Giving back to our communities is essential to who we are here at Member One, and for our plusONE cardholders, it’s essential to who they are as well,” state Lori Cauley, Chief Brand & Experience Officer. “We are thrilled to provide those members an opportunity to have a voice in choosing what non-profits we direct these dollars towards as part of our GivingTuesday initiative.”
Member One asked our plusONE Visa® cardholders to nominate a non-profit to receive a donation on GivingTuesday. After evaluating the nominations, four non-profits were selected to receive a combined donation total of $15,000. The four non-profits that received funds on GivingTuesday 2021 were:
