The act of paying it forward means to respond to a person’s kindness by being kind to someone else.
What’s better is when you’re a member of our credit union, you not only have access to better services and products than most traditional banks – from lower interest rates on loans to the highest yielding savings accounts in the market – but you also get to pay it forward to the community.
Our mission to do what’s right each and every time extends beyond our benefits and the services that we offer. We strive to make our community a better place by supporting local nonprofits that share the same mission.
So far this year, under the leadership of our member-elected, volunteer Board of Directors, we have had the pleasure of supporting several local nonprofits through charitable donations, including the Friends of the Library of Hawaii, the Center for Tomorrow’s Leaders and Hawaii Foodbank to name a few.
Our commitment to education is also a priority – from free financial educational seminars to the community to scholarships for students pursuing their higher-education goals to funding for teachers to purchase classroom supplies. By the end of this year, we can be proud to say we would have invested nearly $1 million in giving back to our community.
