PLYMOUTH, Mich. – Community Financial Credit Union is asking nonprofit organizations throughout southeastern and northern Michigan, “What GOOD could you do with $1,000?”
That question kicks off another season of Summer of Sharing, when Community Financial donates $1,000 a day for 60 days to nonprofit organizations throughout Michigan.
This is the credit union’s fourth year donating $1,000 a day in their Summer of Sharing program. President and CEO Bill Lawton is excited to keep the tradition of sharing alive in 2014.
“We are inviting the community to tell us which organizations are doing great work and deserve additional financial support,” Lawton said. “It is part of our culture to give back to our communities, and we are proud to bring Summer of Sharing back once again.”
Community Financial started accepting nominations from the public on May 27. Members of the community can visit www.SummerOfSharing.org to submit an essay-style nomination explaining how the nonprofit benefits the community. Nomination essays will stay live on the site for others to learn about how local nonprofit organizations benefit their community.
Throughout the next three months, Community Financial will announce the winning recipients on www.SummerOfSharing.org Community Financial has donated over $180,000 through Summer of Sharing since 2011.
