Each year, Credit Union 1 employees across our state participate in "Giving Tuesday." Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving! It represents the opportunity for each one of us, worldwide, to help transform our communities -- and it's also one of my personal favorite days of the year.
Alaska is one of the most rugged and beautiful places on earth – and one of the best ways to appreciate the scenery is by BOAT! We have wide open waters, winding rivers and loads of lakes for recreation. Ready to dip your toes into boat ownership? Take a look at the amazing Alaskan sights you could explore anytime, from the helm of your very own vessel. It’s time to 🎵 set out on the sea for adventure! 🎵
Families and homes from Anchorage to the Mat-Su Valley are in need of your help to recover from recent earthquake damage. To share #CU1LUV and help meet this urgent need in our communities, Credit Union 1 is raising funds for earthquake relief!
Check out the following press release that announces Credit Union 1’s 2018 #GivingTuesday plans! Our employees will be distributing gifts, delivering donations and committing “random acts of kindness” throughout our state on November 27, 2018 – all to celebrate the spirit of giving and #CU1LUV with our fellow Alaskans.
Throughout November, in tandem with #CU1LUV Month, Credit Union 1 will be raising funds for the Food Bank of Alaska. This local organization helps provide healthy meals for families in need throughout our state! Since 1979, they have been securing donated food for nonprofit agencies to distribute to hungry Alaskans. By donating to the Food Bank of Alaska, you’ll help positively impact the fight against hunger right here in our state. Talk about sharing the #CU1LUV!
In October, Credit Union 1 is raising funds for the Alaska AIDS Assistance Association (Four A’s) and their efforts to support and empower people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. This association is also working toward the elimination of HIV infection and its stigma in all Alaskan communities. Four A’s currently provides services such as subsidized housing and medical care information, which allows ill Alaskans to pursue employment and vastly improve their circumstances!
Did you know that 20% of U.S. students will not complete high school on time and earn a diploma? Alaskan youth are often at even higher risk of not graduating – which can impact their financial wellbeing for the rest of their lives. Help improve this frightening statistic and empower Alaskan youth with a donation to Junior Achievement of Alaska today!
Imagine waking up one day to a disaster that left you homeless, without food for your children or even shoes to protect them. A donation to the American Red Cross of Alaska helps families like yours survive life-changing events like this.

Welcome to 2018, Alaska! Credit Union 1 is gearing up for a big year ahead, and a big part of this plan is to share even more heart-warming, life-changing #CU1LUV across our state.
