In May, Credit Union 1 is excited to host a month-long fundraiser for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Alaska. This local, youth-focused organization provides children who are facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported 1-to-1 relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. By donating to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Alaska, you’ll help make a positive, long-lasting impact on an Alaskan child’s life!

CU1 is accepting donations for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Alaska in any branch or via an Online Access transfer to account 457311 S1.8. Since 2013, CU1 and our generous members have helped raise $17,000+ (or an average of $4,250 per annual fundraising month) for BBBS! Together, we hope to meet and exceed this number in May.

As always, 100% of proceeds will go to the receiving organization. Whether you manage your money in-branch or online, we make it easy to donate – and every penny helps make a big difference in the lives of Alaskan littles!

Here are a few ways that your donation will go to use:

  • Recruiting new Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers.
  • Covering the costs of background checks, while ensuring trained professionals match Littles to responsible Bigs.
  • Enabling ongoing supervision and relationship support for every Big, Little and Little’s family.
  • Providing cultural and social activities to enrich the opportunities for children.
